    Dude, that is a thing of beauty!

    I badly need to sort the wiring in my fretless as some point, as they're so much fun to play...

    On a more serious note, I'm a small business owner for the last 15+ years. I service my customers one at a time, and I know how impractical the custom guitar market is, both in fulfilling orders for multiple people at a time, and making a practical living out of it.

    I do marketing and multimedia production work for a living, and I can sell product for $1000 - $3000 with little to no expense to me vs. trying to sell guitars for anywhere within that span and expecting $500 - $1000 in hard costs per guitar, tons of risk, hundreds of man-hours and having to actually manage the customer and hand over a flawless product. It's entirely impractical. So no, no Black Friday runs anytime in the near future.

    I basically build stuff for myself, I build some stuff I might post up if somebody wants something finished (of which there is none, because it's not a priority) and occasionally I'll offer the odd project for a friend or to help someone out. Guitar building is a stress relieving, creative outlet for me and that's a pace that keeps it that way. I know my limitations and I try not to move beyond them on my own, muchless with someone else's money.

    Incredible work! Thank you for sharing.

    Your comments on guitar building and CNC match my own. There are times when I think a CNC would be handy, but not often enough to justify the money and space.

    It's all been said, but I'll toss in another "Wow, that is fucking awesome" because, well, it is.
