I not sure if I understand you correctly but there is the mrp (manufacturers recommended price, what the manufacturer "recommends" the shops to charge) and then there is the usually lower street price, what shops actually charge. And about 800, one can get the rg1570 for about 800 EURO, but I doubt you can get it for 800 US Dollars. Although the price differences between countries can be quite huge. Prices in America are often about 30% lower than in than in Europe. I've got no Idea about Israel tough.

Hope that helps,
Jonas

Those 1300$ are the mrp. In europe that recommendation is 985€. But it retails for 850€ or something. 1300/800 seems to be quite a huge different. So maybe it's b ware or something like that. You can see an example of this here:
http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product...itar?sku=519965. "MSRP $1,333.32" their price 999$ "savings 333$".
