You'll need to adjust the tv set soon.<G> Actually I know where you are going with that train of thought. It's not that a 1970 Stratocaster isn't old, and isn't considered an Antique now...it is. But they aren't classics - Some are great guitars; fun to play; and are aesthetically nice. But there is a reverence that goes with a 1957 LP, or a 57 Stratocaster, or a 54 Telecaster that will never be present in any modern day built 'vintage replica' guitar.
