    Blimey, the quality of finishes on current Fenders is beginning to challenge Gibson!! I just love the 'do not touch' sign... like you could accidentally put a scratch on it!!

    What is up with these silly prices they are putting on guitars these days. MSRP 15K, for something that may cost 3-5% to produce!

    Everything is artist or limited or some other special marketing name.

    Anything for profit I guess.

    the MSRP may end up being the street price as well.
    fatsound guitars evidently has one coming in and on the website they say, "no discount".
    makes me wonder if the profit margin to the dealer is lower than for other guitars or whether retailers think it's gonna be such a hot item that they can get full MSRP.
    either way, wouldn't it be cheaper to have GVCG build the same guitar for U?
