Ant, its likely I will be collecting on the 30th, ive attached pics of the guard fitted to the “spare” fireman so everything is ready for when it gets here.

:?

If Jaden changes his price then that's not Sharpant's business or problem - the thought that Sharpant has some sort of obligation to not reveal the price he paid is ludicrous.

If Sharpant simply doesn't want to tell us, that's fine. However, I would also be interested to know.

It's his decision afaik. If you want to know the exact price ask Jaden for a quote.

I totally don't get that statement. As before, if you don't want to tell us, that's fair enough.

Going by typical 6 string price, I'm guessing anywhere between £2-3k, although I'd be shocked if it were more than that.

no i think thats right, maybe Jaden cut him a really good deal like £500 (tho im certain he didnt)

Its not fair for Ant to give the price, or everyone will expect the same price

cant wait to see it all on the actual body Ant

Expecting the same price wouldn't be reasonable?

Well, keeping your prices a secret so you can effectively charge more for your products seems like a pretty boneheaded business model to me. Realistically I'm not a potential customer at this point in time, but that would be enough to make me lose all interest in the idea...

Then again, I am a blood sucking lawyer.

whoa back chaps..

first, thanks for the comments on the work done, all appreciated.

Ant has the right idea, a "published" on a forum isnt a good idea for many reasons, but I dont mind if he tells anyone what he paid for it.

there has been some interest in the spare fireman, im also willing to sell it "as is" with a pickguard cut in your colour, ready to clearcoat, oil, paint - whatever.
its also the last one from me, again, for obvious reasons.

and Nitefly, its not about charging some people more, its not divulging what "mates rates" are

I transcribe professionally and make £20 a tune, but when a mate asks me to do a little something for him for a magazine or a website or whatever, who am I to say what i charge? I dont want everyone to think that the odd low price is what everyone gets

Well, I'm not really clued up on what these obvious reasons are either... last post or last fireman?!

If last Fireman I supposed he could potentially mean, ahem, bloodsucking issues.

Either way, keep posting good sir!

This is very true, but I think this argument loses weight when we increase the price massively and remember this is a copy guitar.

ok, reasons are obvious to me... sorry.

as nitefly says, its a copy guitar, I dont mind making one or two like this but anymore and im just as bad as the factories in china churning out fake jems and pgms etc, I dont want to be a counterfeiter.
Ant's fireman will not have (and i will never put) the ibanez logo on it.
Ant is a PG fan and so am I so it was made for that reason really, I wouldnt make for example a George Lynch bones guitar, im not a fan.. I have absolutely loved making that guitar but i have my own line of guitars - wiv my name on an everyfing.... if you aint seen em, check this:
