    Well, they're made punctually with CNC machine,and all guitars with good specification. What more could you possibly need to know? I can't wait for your review. I truly hope it turns out to be a good surprise for ya!

    This is less than lunch for the family. I'm blessed to have a little disposable income. The FGN wasn't a huge $$$ either.

    Considering I promised to take my family to Universal if my oldest daughter gets accepted into a specialized high school ... I'm looking at a $5000 trip to Universal next month. Oh man ....

    A friend just came back from a trip to India. He brought back a few posters ... like the Rock posters we put on our bedroom walls.
    The price, I noticed: 7 or 8 Rupees
    context: It's like 70 or 80 Rupees to one dollar

    So, these posters cost $0.10 (10 cents). Where for us in the developed, first world ... we pay like $10.

    So, material, paper, ink, equipment to print at scale I imaging .... and labor: 10 cents selling price.
