The closest commercial offering is the Fender 57 Custom Twin-Amp. 40W, hand built, and a street price of $2999. An original Bassman of this era will set you back $7k easily, depending on condition. The Mojotone kit is at the high end of kit price ranges, and will set you back around $1100 or so with shipping. There's cheaper kits out there, though. My time and labor don't cost me anything out of pocket, either.

On a cost comparison against the reissue PCB amps, the kits fare poorly. That's an apples to oranges comparison, though since there's a lot of skilled labor in a hand built amp. However, the kit will be easily serviceable and should last for decades with proper care.
