Oh this won't end poorly at all..
it looks fine to me? maybe I'm just not seeing it.
the high b bridge is slightly off but other than that there's nothing too bad that I can see from the pic. We haven't been shown any fretwork shots or anything yet though...
at least he's figured out how to route properly now, unlike when he made this abomination.
Looks like the control panel cover is suppressed on the top and jutting out a bit on the bottom. Not important, but not a great sign.
I really want to like his guitars. But ehhhhhhh
It also looks like a weird stain on the back near the neck joint.
I dont understand the design ethos with the neck joint and such, but I'm an ERG noob
Ah my favorite past time. Armchair QC department.
I think people have these guitars and like them...
but the Ngd's here have been savage.
firsthand experience with claas
We'll come on man -- it's not like we're being nitpicky, the great Wall of China and the gaps in those pickup routes are the only man made objects visible from space.
That pic is fair game but the Facebook comments and the stuff about the saddles/tuners is a fucking joke. The fact that this thread kicked off with the same tone is beneath this board, and that's saying a lot.
You don't think the saddle spacing and alignment is a QC issue? I mean, not sure it's significant enough to matter, but seems a bit subpar. I wouldn't be particularly thrilled to get that (if it wasn't something I could just rotate by hand myself -- not sure if those saddles have screw mounts on one side and are just pivoting around one anchor point, or if multiple, and it's poorly measured)
I can't remember how expensive these are though - weren't they ultimately selling below $2k?
Some guitar builders need to brush up on their finishing work, I see...the pits and pockmarks in the first two picks are pretty amateur. It seams like proper grain filling, prep and spraying is the last technique to be perfected by some luthiers and smaller builders
That's becoming trendy though, so you can't blame that entirely on unintentionally shoddy finish work.
Two separate points, really. Yeah if the saddles are off and not easily adjusted straight that's a legitimate QC issue.
That's a separate point from "LAWL CLAAS IS TRASH" and reposting the old builds as confirmation the guy doesn't know how to build a guitar, not how far he's come (which he even admitted to, despite being flamed).
But the general thing of people with no interest in an item in the first place just sitting on the sidelines to throw bombs fuckin annoys me. Nothing wrong with criticsm or different opinions but flaming is just lame.
Just to confirm, the second guitar that KnightBrolaire posted (with the atrocious pickup routing and bridge routing amongst over a handful of other observable issues and flaws), that guitar was built AFTER Javier's here and only recently posted on the CLAAS Facebook page.
CLAAS hasn't gotten any better at building. Just better at trying to cover his bullshit up. He is the new/current Etherial. In fact, the two of them are neck-and-neck for the most clueless builder award for this decade.
