    No info listed on his website, and I'm guessing it's pricey. I asked this question on another thread, but I think it got buried in all the (good) posts. I'm looking at lots of different options, but I can't overlook this one. Thanks!

    I know dsp.....I'm just messin' with ya 'cause that's the stock answer to just about any D'Pergo price or option question...... even when half the people here know exactly what the answer is and the guy asking is just looking for a ballpark number to see if it within the realm of possibilities.

    It's like for sale ads that say "call for price". While I do realize it's much easier to "set a hook" if you can do a little PR on the phone, IMHO most of us would simply rather see a price sheet with base price and options listed.

    Thanks for the info, guys (and for the ballpark $, whoismarykelly). I prefer to make initial price inquiries here rather than take up a builder's time when I'm just in the daydreaming stages. Man, the Bakersfield looks sweet. Great guitars + great photography = GAS.

    I couldn´t agree more on both counts. If I´m daydreaming about these lovely guitars it´s nice to have a rough price in mind. And bothering the builder for this information - when this is a gear forum with knowledgable, helpful, D´Pergo fans on it - seems like wasting his time. The contoured Bakersfield looks fantastic.
