POA - based on giving a price estimate and for good reason. Each guitar we make has particular specifications determined by the client. We set a high bar to the components and timbers we use and still there can be significant variations in cost. Timbers are hand selected for grain and figure and dried down to a 8-10% moisture content for stability in house. Maple tops can vary in price based on density of figure. Off the shelf high end humbuckers are relatively cheap compared to the really exclusive hand made ones:  A set of Seymour Duncans might set you back £150 but a set of Virgil Arlo could cost in excess of £600 or more plus a wait for the build and delivery. Some hardware is built by hand too and even off the shelf hardware has significant cost disparities. 

Below are examples of price based on specific custom orders:
