The inconsistent experiences that I've read about on forums, such as what @LexMentis went through, have completely put me off the idea of one day buying a custom guitar. Kiesel, Mayones and plenty of other manufacturers make really beautiful guitars, but you never know quite what you're getting until it's in your hands.First, sorry that happened, man. Totally shitty. Second, you couldn't pay me to enter the Kiesel torture chamber.
Fortunately for me, I'm content with the specs of production MIJ Ibanez models (other than pickups, which are cheap and easy to change), so a custom would be purely about choosing my own unique aesthetics. The right Sugi J. Custom would probably be a much better option for me than going custom, if I can ever bring myself to spend that much on a guitar (a "production" J. Custom RG8570 is my most expensive guitar atm).
