GUEST,SteveG 'Vintage' instruments on eBay (12) RE: 'Vintage' instruments on eBay 06 Jan 12


Surely most adjectives don't have clearly marked out boundaries/definitions and this is simply another example. If I go into a vintage clothing shop I don't expect to see brand new items or suits of armour, but I have a rough idea that most of the stuff in there is going to be from the recent past. Vintage has a vague age connotation and any reference to quality is purely accidental.
