I agree that cyclicality tends to describe the tie to demand better than seasonality, at least with luthier-built guitars.
Maybe seasonality impacts lower-end, massed-produced instruments.
I think the thought of the thread is interesting but there are multiple things that can lead to demand. For instance, I wonder what impact CITES will have on the future value of foreign instruments that have already made it across the pond...
