    Still some good stories
    And it shows how much someone using a guitar can affect the market

    Very true- an "endorsement" like that can really boost the demand and value of gear

    It's happened many times with guitar
    But normally not with ones like in the article
    The Beatles did a lot early on for Rickenbacker & Gretsch

    If you were a performer you could really consciously create a market for models- like insider trading with guitars

    You could try and might succeed, but there would be no guarantee

    If you were Eric Clapton you probably could do it

    I think it's one thing for a big name to create fresh excitement for what is basically a high-quality guitar that's not really in favour with musicians...Such as Clapton with LP's, or Hank Marvin or Hendrix with Strats. It's a different scenario when a name artist creates mystique around what basically is a down-and-dirty cheapo. I'm not sure the Guild falls into that category, but some of the others mentioned in that link are forgettable guitars.
