My reply, while terse, wasn't meant to be flippant. Rather just an observation of your seemingly surprised reaction to this thread. So I apologize if it came across that way.
If you're a vendor/sponsor and take on clients you subject yourself to a hell of a lot more scrutiny than a hobbyist or a friend who takes on projects in their spare time (obviously, I'm sure you know that) - but the part of your post I quoted is relevant to your situation appearing to be the latter rather than the former - which doesn't jive with how you present yourself.
In any event; I have no dog in this fight. I've followed your threads and have dug some of the work you've done. And admittedly I found this one while researching you for a potential project.
There are great people here, as you note. With the benefit of the doubt, I hope you're one of them.
You're here, you're responding: talk to your clients, finish up the jobs, send off the guitars, chalk it up to experience and hopefully all will be for the better in the long run.
Best of luck.
And I don't mean that sarcastically.
I didn't take your response as flippant; I appreciate what you said and agree.
The guitar is on it's way home today.

I feel in turmoil with this thread.
I'm curious as to what sort of charges there were for doing this.
What's the green stuff between the binding and fretboard?
You got that right Take a long hard look at them Nibs Total joke!! Like i said All your threads were Learn as you go, But you didn't learn a thing. In a different thread you say you've been doing this for 15 years, If this is your work after 15 years i sure would hate to see year #5s work!! that must have looked like pre school crayon drawings
I'm pretty sure it's glue...
I've seen better quality filing of those nibs on Chinese fakes.
Not to mention the glue going a funny green colour. What's that all about?
To be blunt it seems like the quality work of a
This thread is uncomfortable
Agreed. Ultimately though, job done. Mr Beef is sending the guitar back. OP gets his guitar. He's the one who decides whether the job is acceptable or not.
I got the guitar back. And...damn (not in a good way).
Not happy with the results after all this time? That sucks man
And overspray everywhere, new dents, dead notes & fret buzz that a truss rod/bridge adjustment isnt fixing.
Those fret tops are flat as a pancake.
Please tell me all those god awful scratches around the neck heel that looked like they were attacked with 120 grit sandpaper were there before beef got his hands on it.
And look at the inlays at the 15th, 17th, 19th and 21st frets. They're still misaligned!
Very sad to see the total bastardisation of what was once a perfectly good guitar.
Yikes... This whole thread is troubling. Sorry your guitar was mangled, Evo.
Stupid question, but genuinely curious. How do flat frets affect playing and sound?
