    Builds and pricing; a discussion..

    I've run an electrical business for 23 years. I learned early that you set your price high enough to stay only as busy as you want to be. If you price a job too high you don't get the job. Price jobs too low you'll never catch up to the work load. Find the happy medium.

    Fits in with the rest of the picture. Look at the guitar. She must have been thinking "I've modified t the crap out of the guitar. Now what can I do about this ugly brow case." I guess she could just change the lining to yellow and use it for a custom.
