fist of all hi all :)
forgive my noobness but i dont understand why the price between customs and standards are so different.
i mean the most of the specs written are the same..
why for example, should i buy a custom horizon (twice the price) instead of a standard that has so many features and almost the exact same specs?
i couldnt find a thread like this in the forum.. sorry if still there is one already :o
They're made by the same groups of people, but it is the amount of time spent on the project, attention to detail, and the quality of material used.
Plus, there's always the fact that they can charge what people are willing to pay. If people didn't want to pay as much, they wouldn't charge as much, or make them less expensive to produce.
Why customs are so much more expensive?
Cause you can get anything you want.
I doubt they hand carve the bodies and necks
I've seen a pics of the guys from the custom shop carving and painting guitars by hand. :)
