For the sake of using round figures, you're looking at $1000 for an FL1, $1400 for an FL2 and $2500 for an FL3. You can add $200 for electronics and another $200 for a cutaway aswell.
Cole Clark also offers these optional extras on some Fat Lady Models:

Left Handed -All Models $100.00
Gloss Finish Face Only Acrylic $100.00
Gloss Finish Full Body Acrylic $200.00
Gloss Finish Full Body Nitrocellulose $400.00
Ebony board & Bridge $150.00
Indian Rosewood Back & Sides $200.00
Third pickup Sensor on back $150.00
AAA Grade Spruce $125.00
3 Piece Headstock Fascia $175.00

Anyways, my vote for awesome looking acoustics has to go to either the Gibson Firebird:

or this custon Maton.

From www.lunaguitars.com, I found out this is a sister company of the popular Dean brand, which kind of makes me doubt the craftsmanship and playability of the Luna series.. but damn they look GOOD.

^Ive seen the dragon one in a store in NZ, its not expensive. For good reason too, if you happen to find one. They just look cool from afar.

'nuff said. some of his inlay work is over the top, but jaw dropping none the less.

if he's good enough to be employed by martin for their #750,000 and #1,000,000 guitars i'd say hes pretty good haha

captivate 07-15-2008 12:06 PM

I really like the dragon inlays this guy does. they look amazing. thanks for the link innerpalm!

Check out the striped ebony in picture number 7 on that link. That is pretty.

I'm not sure I would want a guitar with quilting. It's a little bit too fancy for my tastes I think.

captivate 07-16-2008 01:02 PM

Yea, that striped ebony is even better looking IMO.

As for the mahogany... I would want a guitar like that. Usually, I like really plain guitars, but that mahogany is just something else.

I think picture #3 is meant to be a subliminal guitar vagina.

Thoughts? Comments? Fail?
