Here's a great opportunity for someone to acquire a new luthier guitar at price close to some factory made. I bet if this goes to a dealer, it becomes a $5,000 plus listing. Kudos to you Joe, for offering to us first.

Wow, that was very nice of you. It's true, this is priced to sell quickly even though it's valued at much more.
