Rough Prices

Now then, It's very hard to give some baseline prices out so i think the best way is to set out some examples.

The scratchplates are priced according to how hard they are to make (how complex and, in particular, how many flush edges there are!), how large they are as well as the price of the pickguard stock materials cost
