I am posting this next picture for those of you who have not had the pleasure of experiencing a custom build. Every detail is considered along the way.

Example one: Ben was doing a mock up of the headstock with a nice BRW veneer. His trademark is a diamond on the headstock and usually built into the rosette. His name is then inlaid on the back of the headstock veneer.

He glued the diamond on the front of the headstock and was not 100% convinced that he liked the look specifically the way it interacted with the grain of the veneer, so off it goes, no diamond, even though that is his thing, perfection comes first...I mean for 90% of us, this looks great, but he was not happy so off it comes. You gotta appreciate that!

PS. I love guitars!
