Re: Custom Jackson price check
.....a local luthier..... that has a full time job and only builds for pocket change. Doesn't have to pay for commercial space, heat it, power it, pay employees wages, workmans comp, benefits, advertising, and the rest of the very long list of business expenses, not to mention the brand name is just worth twice as much as his no name no reputation, minimum. Yet people compare a company built custom guitar to a private one like it's a fair comparison in price.
And people whine about Ibanez opening a custom shop, when the price structure would be nearly identical.
