Lightbulb Future Classic Guitars

Here I am at work, sitting wondering what will be the next generation of classic, vintage, collectible guitars like the 59 Les Paul, ES-335, Old Strats etc. Anybody got any ideas? I'm guessing it will still be the same old suspects, but what with mass production....... Thoughts?

Probably guitars like;

-certain minor brands like Eastwood/Danelectro/Silvertone/Tokai/etc
-12-string Fenders/Les Pauls/etc
-Pawn Shop series if they'd discontinue them

That's what I think though

Agreed with Amir on the first point. I hope that minor brands that don't get nearly the attention they deserve like Silvertone or Danelectro become the classics of the future.

I also think that any guitar with an extremely flat fretboard will become collectible, as there are only a handful in production with a radius of 20" or above. I can see them becoming more popular as music gets more technical.

Well say if someone has a guitar now that's not worth much and they become famous (like godlike guitarist) then that model from that particular year may become very sought after.

For example I have a Natural Cort G260 made in 2008. If I become a godlike guitarist (I wish) and used this guitar live and recorded with it for my best selling album then in 60 years a Natural Cort G260 from 2008 may be worth a lot of money.

Just my thought on the subject

Well; people are already collecting Paul Reed Smith guitars, but I don't know that there is any "Holy Grail" model, series or year that is recognized yet. Give it time. Beyond that, I can't see anything becoming tremendously sought-after in the future. Between the massive number of guitars that all of the major manufacturers produce and the seemingly endless number of boutique makers out there, I think people will be lusting after 1958-1960 Les Paul CSB Standards, pre-CBS Strats and Telecasters, and early Dot-Neck Gibson ES-335s well into the 22nd century.

^Dude, people are lusting for those now

I think that with the exception of a few signature models, nothing will really be listed after like we lust after the classics. I mean, most of the modern production stuff is very "next best thing" or it's a more or less a rehash on old guitars..

They will probably still say "they sure don't make them like they used too" referring to guitars build today.

So shit's just gonna keep getting worse and worse as time progresses? A bleak view of the future you paint there.
I think more likely it will become good and bad eras. Whether this is a good or a bad era we are in now I will leave open to discussion. I have no opinion really.

I like the direction that it's going in. However, if it's going to be full of Gibson Firebird X's, then we are all screwed.

I am not looking forward to self tuning guitars. Bullshit.



Now I sound like an old man refusing to accept the way of the future.... disc brakes uh? Too complicated... no points in the distributor? I am retiring.

I've played some bloody nice Chinese guitars lately. I think we will see a quantum jump in quality from China in the near future - just like what happened with Japanese guitars. Japanese guitars from when they first started making good stuff are now highly sought after. I think we will see the same with Chinese guitars. A time will come when "Made in China" will mean good, just as "Made in Japan" is today and the first of those will become classics.
Remember, Deep Purple's album "Made In Japan" was a joke at the time because MIJ meant shit.
