Lanfranc Why are Martin Guitars so expensive? (284* d) RE: Why are Martin Guitars so expensive? 05 Jan 08

Given the weakness of the US Dollar and the current oversupply of Martin guitars, they appear to be in the process of becoming much less expensive!

On UK eBay there is currently a 1997 D-41 in near new condition going for less than GBP1000 (current RRP GBP2700) and this is about the only auctioned Martin (as opposed to "Buy it Now") that has any bids at all at the moment.

Does anyone else remember the song "Keep that wheel a'turning", where the hero "turned out more than his boss could sell"?

I rather fear that Chris Martin has saturated the market and we have reached the point where everyone who ever wanted a Martin has now got one (or, in my case, four!)!!!
