I would so love to one day tread the small company luthier path to building me the perfect guitar for me. Its always been single cut les pauls for me , but my sweat is literally battery acid and if a guitar has a nitro finished neck.........then im screwed. Those nitro finishes on necks turn to sticky gunk on humid days if im playing them and poly finishes work just great. Ive drooled over the incredible huber orca singlecut guitars which are poly finished, but the prices would have my wife draggin me by the nuts to divorce courts.Im not moved in any way by anything PRS make , this includes their singlecut models. If I took the small company plunge id be looking maple cap / mahogany body , abr1 type bridge and tailpiece ( absolutely no wrapover types ), rosewood neck and gotoh 3 a side tuners. The guitar would absolutely be a high quality poly finish and sticky neck need never become an issue. But my worry is the situation where somebody specifies a guitar to a small company builder, it arrives in the mail and it underwhelms its new owner. Has anybody ever heard of such an experience ?
