Very sweet guitar! I have a REPLICA of a D'Aquisto that I spent more on than that! Well done!Most 'expensive' of the genre currently in my possession is one of my amplifiers; either a '67 Deluxe Reverb I have about $125 in or I have a prototype of an amp that retailed for $10K that I got in a sponsorship deal back in college. Both are worth big bucks on the market, but I don't have much in them.
I once had Roger Miller's first guitar in my possession for several months for repair. I didn't own it, but it probably has the highest price tag on it yet so far if it ever went up for sale.
Most expensive guitar in terms of money I actually paid is an archtop built by the guy that taught me to make archtops a few years after he died. I think I gave the seller $2,300 or $2,500...

As a luthier, I have a hard time bringing myself to spend much money on guitars. Most I've spent on materials in a single instrument was around $1200.
