Wow. If you are really looking to spend $1200 on a saddle there are lots better choices IMHO.
For $950 you can have one custom made with the new Steele Evo tree.
It also comes with a trial period and money back gaurantee. BarbG on here has one and it is a very nice saddle. I'm saving up for one myself.
You can also have one made on a tree that you buy. The Steele saddle tree company has the FITS system. They have several forms that are identical to most of the saddle trees they make. You buy one form and just keep swapping them out until you find the tree that best fits the horse's back.
You can than either buy that tree from Steele OR get with a company that uses Steele trees (Dakota, Martin,Big Horn, Crates, Reinsman, etc.) and get a saddle that's made on that tree.
Dakota I know for sure is more than happy to build semi-custom saddles as is Riders Choice for under $1000.
