Hey, where'd I put that extra $8,500 I had laying around!?! *It is a nice looking guitar, though.

Hmmmm, "vine of life" or "Darth Vader"???? Decisions.......

It's a shame that you have to talk to ER in order to get one of those. *Nice inlay work though.

BTW- WTF is "vintage mahogany"? *:-)

By the looks of it, I'd say about 3 grand.

They are beautiful guitars! I'd be afraid to play. Until I got the first ding in it, of course. lol

Yeah, $8500 is a "bit" rich for my blood, but I can sure appreciate the craftsmanship. *I doubt a guitar like this would get played much - it's more of an "art" guitar so I don't know about the dead fretboard issue. *

Warrior only uses mahogany of a certain age from what I can gather. *The more expensive the guitar, the older the wood they use. *That's what they mean by "vintage". *The body wood on this guitar might be 200 years old for example. *

Later,

I saw these at the NAMM show...the guy was very cool about letting people pick up some of them. Obviously, some were not available for hands-on inspection, but they were quite wonderful guitars. I have some of the catalog stuff that they had, and this guitar doesn't even scratch the surface of the stuff they had there. Some of the basses were just sick....lol

Yeah, we've been looking at the "King's Closet" guitars (ultra-customized). *They have a "Soldier" model that starts at $1970 for us mere mortals... * :-)
