The guitar lists for $2,699 but has a street price of about $1600. When I purchased it, I had a number of extras put into the instrument. I had Michael's luthier (Josh) install a clear pickguard ($30), Fret Dress, Custom Ebony Bridge, Restring, Tailpiece Leather, Adjust Action and Truss Rod ($215), Install Strap Button in Heel and Endpin ($20). The guitar also comes with a TKL Deluxe Gypsy Jazz Case - Black ($95). So new, this guitar sells for $1,960 with the optimizations and case.
The guitar is for sale for $1,100 OBO including PayPal and UPS Ground Insured Shipping to the lower 48-states
