Came upon Zachary site by accident & was surprised by some comments made by the manufactureer of these guitars! Sounds like we know nothing about our instruments . I didn't appreciate certain comments I read . I've had the good fortune to make about a dozen guitars from scratch & am far , far away from from producing a piece of art ! But the all worked , along with much kindling & sawdust . Seemed odd to have to audition to become worthy of making a purchase ! My feeling is if you can afford one ( I cant ) go buy one . I'm 72 yrs old & have minimal cash flow so looks like I'll go without . Attitude is either good or bad & I try to maintain a good one & obviously some don't ! I best leave this alone Peace. Out!
