i think things are spiraling out of control with some mouthpiece prices. 2400.00 for a Guardala? It seems to me you would be WAY better off buying, for example, a lazer trimmed Guardala model for 200 and sendign to to MOJO for fine tuning. Phil Barone just said it cost him $50.00 to machine a blank. I bought a lost wax Guardala copy from Bob Ackerman about 3 years ago and like it much better than any Guardala I've ever played. But anyway 50 plus another 250-300 for hand finishing and plating and that sounds like a ballpark number to me. 350-400 for a really fine piece. Am I off the mark here Phil? Thanks!
