    Ive heard all the pros and cons of ordering from him, but for anyone that has one of his complete builds, what do you think? I know his hardware is top notch but are the necks, bodies, fretwork top notch? Do they arrive with a good setup? Would love to know and even see some pics of what you got.

    Everything Marc does is quite good.

    The only things to think about are, he lives in an area where everything is very expensive. And his operation is small enough that orders can come in fast enough to swamp the place. My suggestion would be to get him started on your project, then stay out of the way and be delighted when it is complete.

    You can check out my post entitled NGD--WOW! I received my complete build yesterday and it's exactly what I wanted. Marc does great work at a fantastic price.

    Not a full build, but I bought a sugar pine 2-pickup Cabronita body with rear control cavity routed for vol/tone/toggle switch, and Mary Kaye nitro finish from him a few years ago. It was/is an excellent piece -- one of my main gigging guitars!
