So I'm confused. RondoMusic has a custom order section and I can customize a custom guitar to close if not exactly the specs of an AL-3000 but it costs only $285. And it comes with a case.

Is there something I'm missing here? Why is it cheaper
Sure that wasn't just a deposit with the final amount payable nearer the time of the build?

I think it is a deposit. Half now, half at the end. The custom settings will add more to the price.

there is a blinking sentence just above the guitars that reads "Price shown below is for the initial deposit only."
