Just curious. Most Adamas guitars, even old ones, seem to cost two or three thousand dollars, yet the W597, used and in great condition, rarely gets much beyond the $1,150 mark. Anyone know why this is?

My personal opinion is because the designs are different,the early Adamas guitars use a uni-directional carbon fiber top mounted in a suspension ring with most likely a deep bowl,there were some shallow bowl models,The suspension ring really enhances the tone and sustain and makes these guitars on another level,The W597 uses a cross weave carbon fiber top on a basic mid-bowl with taditional binding,they are probably great stage guitars but the Q597 I used to have didn't have the full bodied sound or sustain of my Adamas II 1681-8 ,so theres my 2 cents.
