<SNORT!> "Reasonable" is not the issue here. I agree that $25
would be reasonable, but when I wanted an adjustable thumb rest for my
plastic Yamaha (it turned out that a simple thumb cushion allowed me to
relax my muscles and tendons, no more subconscious anticipation of a
metal thumb rest digging into my flesh, and then I didn't need to move
the thumb rest), the local shop showed me a piece of sheet metal that
was bent into an L-shape, and it had Yamaha's name stamped on it and two
holes drilled in it. "This costs $43," the fellow said. "We'll install
it for free."
