I agree. There's a lot of "bolters and finishers" that run a fair and square business, that build guitars that are top notch in every respect, and that price them reasonably. There's several right here on the TDPRI, and they go out of their way every day to respond to posts and PMs, just to try to be helpful. My Esquire/Partscaster was built by a local "bolter and finisher" with parts that he purchased based on my descriptions of what I wanted. He didn't make a single part of it. Yet, it is by far the best electric guitar I've ever played.
