    :taunt: lol

    In my defence I did post a reverse headstock mockup on the first page.
    But lets be honest, it really does look better with the 3+4 because of the binding alone. The unbound inline stock is ... not ugly, its fine I guess.

    .... I'm about to get flamed aren't I? :duel:

    Well shit.... Now Balaguer just instantly became on my radar. Thank you for listening to the community! How long are the build times for the semi-customs?

    We are currently quoting 5-6 months but lately we’ve been hitting 4.

    I just realized that the tool seems to remember the last configuration you had. I like this. Good job, whoever did that.

    Wow, thanks Joe, that was impressive! Now, how easy would it be to allow jumbo or extra jumbo SS frets?
