That's the online price, in store prices may differ.
But hey, if a couple of colors are selling twice as much, they can increase the price to even out the sales a bit, (some will pay less for a less preferable color) and make more money. This is capitalist America, they can sell it for whatever they want

Most guitar manufacturers do that. Guitars that utilize a solid finish can get away with a cheaper, less attractive slab of wood. Clear, or transparent, finishes require a slab of wood that looks a bit nicer, hence the higher price. As I said, everyone from Taylor to Fender does it. Do you want a solid color body, or one that you can see the grain? If so, be prepared to pay a bit more.
