What guitars do you think have poor resale value? The big three that I've noticed that don't seem to sell well are: Carvin, G&L, and Schecter. They're all high quality guitars, but just don't sell well. While guitars by Fender and Gibson seem to retain 75-80% of the new value, you'd be lucky to get 60% on the above brands. I often see Carvin and G&L's selling for half their new value, and Schecters just plain don't sell. What's the deal?
