Why are original Fenders as expensive as hell? Baby Boomers.

Leo Fender wasn't a genius, but he invented a lot of guitar-related things that worked really well. He sold his namesake company in 1965, and anything made by the original Fender company commands a huge premium because, basically, people believe that Leo Fender sprinkled magic fairy dust on every instrument that came out of his factory.
