For stock guitars, maybe Gretsch.

I'm not including customized guitars (only mass produced).
Are you reelin' in the years?
Battery.

Of all the ones I know, probably Alembic.

Of mass-produced axes, PRS.

EDIT: also Gibson. Those Jazz guitars cost ****ing loads. 4000 euros for an ES-175, if I'm not mistaken.

3d guitars:


8000 to 15000 dollars

most guitars are expensive for their collector's value, not for their actual value, so it's hard to determine.

Vintage guitars will be. Brand new off a production line? Gibson or PRS. Or custom/indie luthier guitars will be a lot more than mass produced stuff, especially really well crafted acoustics.

Mass produced, would probably be Gibson or PRS. You could spend a lot more though if you wanted to.
If you could blow up the world with a flick of a switch,
Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?

With all your power,
What would you do?

Martin?? Nahh..unless you want a D-100 with ridiculous decoration or something..
You can get a decent all-solid Martin for an $800 budget, the D-15.

I wouldn't be surprised if they used Brazilian rosewood for it which is pretty rare and is decreasing all the time. When I was at a PRS night at a music store near me the PRS representitive was saying that they have to take tree stumps of Brazilian rosewood and they have somenody that goes around the villages buying peoples homes just for the wood. The wiki page if anyones interested

that is the tackiest looking piece of tat I have ever seen.

And to answer the question, to my knowledge, top of the line semi Gibbo's and full electric esp's all seem rather extortionate.

EDIT: and the custom replica gibsons, bit off topic, but why pay 6 grand so you can sound like someone else?! :S

PRS is falling down, their past dragons have been better. Not that it's not nice.

those prs dragons look so amazing. Even if I actually bought one I'd be afraid to play it. It look like the inlayer would go blind from the shimmer of all that inlay he put in.

Of all the ones I know, probably Alembic.


My Alembic Further was $7200 new, Little Darling was about $5000 used.
Probably not the most expensive, but the Further might be the best guitar
in existance. I have yet to play anything even close.

Even just looking at new guitars, this question would have to be qualified.
The most single guitar? Factory line? Average?

I got my Gibson Super 400 for $2300. New, I think they're over $10000 and used
ones still go for like $8000. So that's the most expensive one I've paid the least
for (It's a 74 in near perfect condition).

It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.

PRS, Lancouire (or something like that) or Pensa-Suhr
