LOL... indeed.
i just looked up prices for Norlin-era Gibson SG II guitars
and they are inching up towards $2.5K USD... madness!
The whole vintage craze took a while but it seems the lower grade old stuff that was never a fine vintage has become "vintage vintage"?
If not fine vintage.

I find myself offending folks now and then when I share some info on old stuff because I am old, hafta remember some folks adore their old low point of quality era gear.

Also confusing since we have a parallel universe where Squier is better tha FCS and Joyo is better that price gouging small shop USA pedals.

Where does Josh fluffing up the reps of cheap unwanted pedals fit into the market?
Next question: Does Josh know not what he does?

No know no know!

Some folk are deluded! Old doesn't equal vintage or good for that matter. The Bad Monkey is a £40 pedal all day long.

Bloody influencers, talk up some **** about a pedal or a piece if gear and watch the price rise!

Recently I bought a Waza HM2 which is fantastic. Did I want to give some ebay Dick Turppin £200 for some 30 year old battered old one with components that probably have drifted far from their original values, course not. It's just madness! ☹️👎

Rock Stars are no longer important to push gear. They might sell a guitar or a pedal. The youtubers have more sway, longer sales runs, and influence a wider audience -- to sell any and all gear.

Josh knows what he is doing. I'm sure he's already developed a new pedal to hit the Bad Monkey market as the fever runs up, by him, to offer a $100 solution to the Bad Monkeys hitting $500 by then.

Or he has a multi-switching pedal that includes Klon, Bad Monkey, and the dozen other pedals in that space, including his own prior clone. He has a pedal of all the Tube Screamers and one of all the Big Muff Pies already.

If you have an old crappy pedal that you want to sell on Reverb, the title must include the word "vintage" and "tone".
