These are being offered at $1999 at MF, GC and Music123 if you order online. I have no idea why the price is so low for the Teaburst, but it looks like a great deal for an R8. The regular price on R8s in other finishes is still listed at over $3000. The only issue is that this guitar is not currently in stock when I checked, but I was able to order it online for the listed price. I was hesitant to order without playing it first, but I'll have 45 days to return it for a full refund if I'm not satisfied. It will be interesting to see how long this price lasts and how long it will take to get the guitar delivered. It wouldn't surprise me if I get a call telling me that this price was in error and that they won't honor it.
