    :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.

    I like that the headstock left in all the good angles. Nice!

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