Part of that mismatch is cost of building. Commercial rent in Saskatoon is what, $10/month vs $1M/month in Toronto? Cost of materials will be another and lastly what people are willing to pay.What I like using as a "value gauge" when it comes to guitars, is Fury Guitars out of Saskatoon. If Glenn McDougall could make a living hand building guitars from scratch and selling them for $1600 to $1800 each, then what makes someone else's hand built guitars worth $4000 to $6000? Name? nope, not a Gibson. Quality? fit? finish? tone? Sorry, you can't improve on perfection.
Soroking makes some mighty fine machines too btw Guitars
