Wait.....I thought you luthier guys all sold your guitars for like $200-$300. Are you
telling me that's not the case????? So does this mean I won't be able to build myself
a '59 Replica for around $50.00??
where are you getting your statistics? gibson buys lumber by the truckload, luthiers buy it basically per guitar.. we pay A LOT more than gibson does for our lumber, and every other part of the instrument.. A LOT more..
uhh, you wouldn't because you obviously cant afford it.
apparently with you it's all about costs, but to many other people, it's not about cost, its about quality. there are a lot of people willing to pay much more for an item of much better quality.
Sounds like the luthier wins because he can spend his time working for people willing to pay for his product, instead of people like you who are completely out of touch with reality.
There's only one loser taking part in the conversation.
No reason for personal attacks. If it can't be done it can't be done. Simple as that. I just wanted to find out. If i can't employee luthier services i won't. Someone else will get my business. You're the one making living out of it, NOT ME. You don't want the $$$. Someone else will get it. And why don't you tell that to all U.S businesses that moved their factories to China!!!
