In fact, my LP's will probably always be built with out a cnc. Thats the way I have been building them and will most likely continue to do them. Even with jigs and templates each guitar is unique and has its own personality.
I think cookie cutting goes against the whole idea of a replica vintage guitar.
You can't digitize Mojo.
i can digitise mojo. its a specialized process involving teams of trained monkeys. ... i mean researchers...
if you *want* to hand do things, thats a whole different subject of course. i find hand carving necks very fun and stress relieving myself, and even with the cnc, i will still hand carve a few for fun. carving a maple cap with a chisel on the other hand, not really fun. dunno why.
everyones got their own reason for making a guitar. i imagine if you dont need or want cnc in your builds though, you arent gonna be following this thread too closely, hehe.
