It's a rough relation between what the parts cost to buy, and what you
sell the thing for.  In high volume manufacturing (1M+/yr) the ratio
is about 4:1, in boutique or low-volume it can be up to 10:1, for the
lowish volumes that musical instruments/synths sit in I would suggest
a 6:1 ratio.

In that hypothetical hand-wavey number you have the design costs,
manufacturing costs, shipping, distributors margin, shop margin, cost
of returns, etc.
