I think it is a just about perfect corollary. I see people order pieces parts from good sources, and make an awful mess of them I wouldn't want in my house at all. If you reshape the necks, redetail the headstock, apply coatings and topcoatings, fit parts meticulously with a willingness to keep matching necks and bodies until things actually work wonderfully, you can give that value away for cheap but you shouldn't have to if others would fail trying to do the same thing you've just done. I've seen "boutique" guitars (from sources that do not participate with TDPRI) where there's one example using Allparts parts and a second example of all in-house made parts and I thought the "Allparts Partscaster" was easily nicer than their inside guitar but also way way nicer than the average Allparts partscasters I see out there in Fender-Land. You can use this construct to convince yourself a CS Fender No-Caster is just a partscaster as well, if you wanna strain that way. I don't begrudge the O.P.'s inability to appreciate this. This could be all new to him. It takes time, it takes experience with the undertaking to start to pick up on why one thing is not worth $ 50 while something awfully similar in some superficial ways is worth $ 5,000, at least to most. And more; some people actually want a Seasick Steve guitar with rattly parts falling off, with pots and wires loose and cutting in and out. Some people want a guitar that fell into a mineshaft 10 years ago, or was in the mud in a pond for 6 months. I've stopped trying to make decisions for people who want those kinds of bragging rights - just give them what they want, and make them pay enough so they're convinced they are special.
