    The price seems like a bit of a reach considering what he charges on other stuff, but the guitar looks awesome!!!

    It only takes one......and they might move some on it...

    The TC6 they had was priced just under 2000.

    That's why it seems like too much of a jump. I might be able to understand $1000 more for a set neck, but I don't know how they justify $1000 more considering that it really should not cost much more in terms of materials or effort to build than the TC6 beside it.

    I love it.
    I've been looking at Firebirds (and or alternatives) for awhile now.
    I'm interested

    Very sweet, but overpriced for a bolt on IMO.

    Here are some things on this guitar I haven't seen on other Fanos... at least much.. maybe.. I haven't seen them all!!!... this may impact the price...

    Ivoroid neck binding
    graphtech saddles
    bigsby.. (this is an upgrade over standard bridge but has been on many Fanos)

    Lollar P90's... not sure if they cost more or the same as Fralins
    Trapezoid inlays... most fano's have had dots..
    Hardshell case...most come with a gigbag.

    and it SOLD!

    Bummer.. I was hoping to make it over to Infinity in time to try it out before it left the building.

    I have no idea what price it did sell for.
