Fodera has become successful selling more inexpensive "standard" instruments - $5-6K instead of $8-20K for customs. I don't see Suhr going the other direction imho.
I have spent $7K (and above) for a 4-string from Fodera. But that is 24-fret, dovetail, Pope 3-band, incredible attention to detail, yada yada, and I know I can turn around and sell it without 50% depreciation. My YYD is likely worth about 90% of the new price.
But if there is a collector market - then all bets are off.
