    Luxxtone, Charvel Custom shop, or Chubtone

    I spent 30 years in manufacturing and have to disagree with your opinion. A good piece of wood is a good piece of wood, no matter if it's routed on a cnc in your shop, my shop, or chiseled out by himalayan monks. The setup and custom finish is what sets a builder like luxxtone apart.

    Would PRS and Mesa “exist” as they do today without Santana?
