Why You Should Seriously Consider Investing In Gold

investing in gold Bucks County PAGold is a great way to get ahead financially, and it makes a marvelous investment that you can appreciate wherever you are. For a lot of people, owning gold can be one of the most satisfying types of investments, bar none. When you want to get ahead and grow your wealth, gold can be a great way to do so.

The Price of Gold Generally Rises

The biggest problem with a lot of “investments” over the past few years is that their prices have fallen instead of risen. This isn’t so bad when you’re ready to buy them. But when you’re looking to cash out and use some of the money you’ve waited so long for, this can be a serious heart breaker.

Now at Doylestown Gold: A vintage Fender Jaguar guitar for sale

Fender Jaguar GuitarDoylestown Gold Exchange & Jewelers has just acquired a vintage Fender Jaguar guitar. This is an incredibly cool instrument. It’s also a rather rare guitar, and a true collector’s showpiece.

The Fender Jaguar was produced for 13 years, beginning in 1962. It introduced a number of sonic features that were designed to lure guitar players away from Gibson, which was one of the company’s main competitors at the time.

The Beach Boys’ Carl Wilson was one of the best-known guitarists who played with a Fender Jaguar during the instrument’s salad days. Indeed, the Jaguar’s earliest burst of popularity came directly from the mid-60s surf rock scene.

In the 1980s, years after Fender had cancelled production of the Jaguar, the guitar experienced an unexpected resurgence of popularity in the punk rock and new wave scenes.

But it wasn’t until the introduction of alternative rock and indie rock in the 1980s and 90s that the Jaguar’s social currency — not to mention the financial value of vintage Jaguar models, like the one we recently acquired — truly began to explode.
