That is essentially the right answer. Like the amps from those halcyon days gone by that many of us seem to obsess over, LPs, Strats, etc. were simply what was available at the time. Nobody was thinking, "Oh, in 20-30 years and beyond my LP is going to be something special."

It's like the Pet Rock. Kinda sorta.

That's true but when I retired from gigging in 1985, my 1967 Gretsch was Vintage.

Only 22 years old. I still gig with my 30 year old strat and 36 year old Guild.

I think you and I are actually on the same page. I've never understood why the Guitar Collector Market has decided that pre 1972 is Vintage. I feel that they should move the vintage year up every now and then because they've held on to that 1972 magic year since the 1980's.

And from what I have read Clapton and others bought those "vintage" guitars from many music shops that had tons of used Strats for around $150-200 bucks each.
