2 years...3 hots and a cot provided though.
You know, hand carved archtops go for quite a bit of money. The luthier is basically on retainer for 3 months working on your instrument, plus the materials are very expensive...
$1300 cash for my used AV64 last year with the infamous tattoo sticker.
My most pricey guitars are these three in the $1500-$2500 range at the time of purchase.
Gretsch Tennessee Rose
I picked up a new Martin D-18 in 1999 for $1400. It is the lightest, most resonant guitar I have ever held. Sound is just amazing. The neck fits my hand like no other. I think it was a bargain at that price.
I picked up a '94 Mexican tele toploader new in '97 for about $350. The neck is a little fatter, and it has the small vintage frets. My #1 electric.
I paid $950 for a new 1999 hardtail ash American Strat, if sounds great, and fits nice in my hand, but not like the tele does.
My Gibson BR-9 lapsteel was about $200 if I recall. The P-90 in that thing just screams.
I keep thinking I'd like an old LP TV Special DC, but I can't seem to find one at a price I'm willing to pay. I remember when they were expensive at $400.
Paid about $2,700 for a ‘73 Les Paul Recoding Guitar. It’s really outstanding, looks, feel, sound. Well worth the money.

That’s just frigging awesome right there!
Just under $2K for a NOS Larrivee LV09E in 2004.
This looks like a market research for potential buyers
£450 ($587). 2014 Gibson Les Paul Tribute. Didn't keep it long because of the Dirty Fingers pickups.
$900 and change. 1995 American Standard Custom Shop with Texas Specials. Bought it brand new in the case. She plays like a dream. It kills me to see guitar prices these days.
The a Gibson Les Paul Bourbonburst R8 first, and the Goldtop R7 second.
The most I’ve ever paid is £2400 for my left-handed, Fiesta Red Custom Shop Strat. Great guitar, unlike my Sonic Blue Custom Shop which is a total pile of poo.
The most I paid was £2400 for my Fiesta Red, Custom Shop, left-handed Strat, great instrument.
I paid £1325 for my Martin 000-15 M
Most expensive Tele was a 52 avri at £950
