T5 Pricing

Elderly Instruments has a page with pricing for the T5...which goes from $2598.00 MSLP for the "Tobacco sunburst finish standard model T5" up to $3498.00 for the "Transparent blue finish custom model T5" (flame maple top.)

Assuming the usual way of things, expect to pay between 60-70% of MSLP, so that's about $1600 - $2100(if you're lucky.)

Can't afford that? Maybe you should try and win one.

Meanwhile, one poster at the Acoustic Guitar forum said this of the T5:
it is very, very light weight -- it felt lighter than a Gibson Hollowbody and much, much lighter than a Tele or Les Paul [...]

I was able to get a very cool,realistic tele sound out of it.

I was able to get a thick, chunky les paul sound out of it.

I did not get a 100% acoustic sound of it, but I only got to play it for 5 minutes or so.

Hmm...if you still don't get a great acoustic sound out of it, what's the point?
