I have a GV Rubio Estudio as well and you can pay way less than $3000 for one but it won't be as good as nice Luthier instrument. You can get good deals on used Luthier instruments that are lesser known if that's what you really want. If you want to save a lot of money I'd look at the Rubio or Almansa brand I had good experiences with both.
