As far as I'm concerned, Dan should be able to charge whatever he wants for his work. But the prices that people are asking, just annoys me. Look, I get it. Klons went for what (?) and sell for what? Dumbles sold for what (?) and sell for what? That doesn't mean that I have to embrace it. There is a vendor on tgp (that I won't name) that single handily raised the price on Dan's guitars by $1,000.00 sometime before Dans announcement. I guess that is what started my resentment (which I know can kill you). I spoke with this guy and really talked up Danocasters, and then he figured let's jack up the price and see what happens. I appreciate the forum and the opportunity to vent. I have never stared a thread before, but couldn't help myself. I guess the real conundrum will be when I move my Danocaster.
