Oh, I say, Belvedere! Bring me a mint juleps!
$75 for a note is pretty cheap, but we have to consider the raw material and how abused gmonady's have been. We'll have to spend a whole bunch of time working on them to get them in playable condition. I would suggest fabricating our notes from scratch. Should take less time and produce better results. Cheaper, too.

I've abused a few notes myself - usually by dropping the high ones and crushing the low ones.
What's the ideal material for constructing new ones? Unobtainium?
