This is great. The price is still expensive at $3000 but the parts alone are about $800 and that was with cutting corners etc. I think you would be hard pressed to make one of these with super 2's, a decent bridge, and tuners, and sell it for a grand without losing money nevermind adding a buffer.. Moriarties guitars go for like $6k bare bones and I would buy a PRS over one of those anyday
You can't compare a handmade beauty to a mass produced factory guitar. Hey I like PRS's (except for the tremelo and the non-adjustable fixed bridge), but they are not a hand made guitar either.Moriarties guitars go for like $6k bare bones and I would buy a PRS over one of those anyday
They probably made more PRS's today (I mean literally today), than Matt Moriarty has made guitars. Go look on ebay and see how many PRS's are for sale there. Probably thousands!
(OK I checked, 1187 PRS's for sale on Ebay. I thought that this one looked real nice at only $10,000 :

Looks like it has a tremelo, so no thanks on that one, but the top is nice.
