$4,000 Yamaha on eBay (NOT the CG171SF) 

Spotted this while surfing eBay recently:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Yamaha-FCSTD-Hand-Crafted-Flamenco-Guitar-As-New_W0QQitemZ330228850912QQihZ014QQcategoryZ33033QQtcZphotoQQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

It appears to be the top-end, hand-crafted, solid-woods Yamaha Flamenco guitar, as opposed to the laminated CG171SF.

He's stated that UK list price is about £2,000 ($4,000) which seems pretty steep for a Yamaha. But then, reviews of the cheapo Yamaha are generally good, so who knows what the top of the range model will play like?

Current price £1,200.

I am sure you are aware this guitar is only built on receipt of a Customer Special Order.

" I need a Really Fantastic guitar! ...and a bit more if you can.."

People actually pay that much for a Yamaha? When a company makes everything from motorcycles to jet skis to mixing boards to televisions, is that really the kind of company one should give $4000 to for a guitar? To justify that much of my coin, personally I'd prefer the maker focus solely on guitars.
