Very well said Tad.
Please don’t think that I am complaining about SC used prices. I also have benefited from the lack of appreciation( in both definitions of the word) .
I just have always been struck by the inequity in the price of used SC instruments.
Whenever I have sold one of my SCs it has always been one that I purchased used,so I have not suffered the 40-50% depreciation that I have seen with some of the listings on other sites.
And, you are correct in that each SC model is “voice” unto it’s self.
When I first began obtaining SCs I played lots of the other Boutique Brands and some Custom Shop Martins.
I always came back to SCGC instruments….the various voices were always in Harmony with my soul.
