Is it just me, or are Lexus cars not that expensive? They are $36k-80k for most of their models. That is not the high end at all in cars in terms of pricing. Prob 20-40% on top of what a similar Toyota model costs excluding more limited edition outliers. So my general feeling was guitars that are like 20-40% more than the usual suspects made in Indonesia/China by LTD/Squier/Epiphone/etc. Like a Lexus, a mass produced guitar model, but a higher quality standard than more flashy options. You can buy a Dodge for more than the average Lexus, but it's a total POS.You asked about Lexus but it seems like your budget is Toyota
Are you saying you have to spend $2000+ to be in the upper-middle of guitars? Some folks suggest $5,000 guitars in this thread. Perhaps my car analogy was a bad idea since people seem to have a different idea in their heads of what a Lexus costs in comparison to the rest of the car market. I am rather surprised to hear consistent quality does not start until that price point. Would like to see how you would rank various brands then? Not trying to argue, just exploring market realities. I am pretty inexperienced with various brand options and 2023 pricing realities.
