    A note on their myspace page says the guitars will be available July 1st. Still no mention of how much they will cost.

    The MSRP is $1880 on them, but I guess the lowest advertised price is going to be $1499. So you should be able to get one of these guitars for around $1500.

    Yeah I like them too. Leaning toward getting the Thurston one first, I like that one a little better.
