Generally a good quality basic saddle will run you anywhere from $1500-$2500. Paying anything more than that is absurd in my opinion.
My saddle is about $4000 new and worth every penny. As are most Antares, Butets, Devoucouxs, etc. There are is a noticable comfort and quality difference between these and most $2500 saddles. I don't believe most of the general public needs a higher end saddle, but anyone who spends a lot of time in the saddle ought to get the best quality their budget can afford.
