I emailed a dealer in USA, they wanted $1099 for it, but in the end, it doesn't get much cheaper than buying it from germany, because of shipping and taxes, i would probably save $1-200.
Similiar guitars? I don't really know what i should be comparing with, but other guitars i've been looking at are a few Caparisons, Edwards, ESP's and stuff like that.. The Caparisons are a few $100 more than the S, but it's probably a better guitar.. The Edwards guitars are a few $100 cheaper than the S... The ESP's that i'm interested in are a few $100 more than the S
