Hi folks. Way back in the late 90's, I started collecting gear I got to know from the 60's and 70's...which included a bunch of Kustom gear. I actually pal'ed around with some of the guys on this forum, and met many of them at some guitar shows in Dallas and Indianapolis. Then, I went dark, for no sinister reasons, just life happened (new daughter, job, etc.) So here it is, 2022, and I realize that I should probably thin the herd of some stuff. But it occurs to me that the market for vintage Kustom gear may have waned, as many younger folk may not even know about Kustom. I wonder, is there still a collector's market for this gear? I've looked on eBay and periodically see some items, but nothing like I used to see (and bid on) back in the late 90's.
Can I hear back from some of you on what the market is like nowadays?
Thanks in advance.

I think in the 90's when the reissue stuff came out everyone was hooked! I bought later in the game. As far as market, the amps can do alright, the cabs if in color can do ok. The 3x15 cabinets are hard to sell, I guess in my looking all the ads are still up. No one is getting rich for sure, but I guess I bought them for playing and don't really worry about making money off of them, but it would be nice! I wish you luck!
