You should get a 3D printer, Dave.
Cut all those asshats right out of the picture.
You could make all your own guards, backplates, toggle switches, knobs, etc.
Maybe even nut blanks?
I don't know about that last one though, I have no idea what that material would be like for a nut.
You could even work out a program that would etch your logo into the back plate or truss cover or something.
I've never used a 3D printer, but these are all things that I've been led to believe you could do if you had one.
This has been my feeling and approach for the last 20 years.......You beat me to it! Our USPS has become an embarrassment. It fucking awful.
I always refuse to accept online delivery from USPS, I insist on UPS of FED-X - with no last mile delivery by USPS. If they won't do it, I buy elsewhere.
Where can I find more information on this Apache Guitar line? Are there pics of past builds? Options available? Please & Thank you.This Apache guitar line of ours is a platform that goes from a basics "jr" model for under $1000, to a full-tilt, top-drawer showpiece.
Yeah dealt with that crap when a lot of stuff started coming from JapanSounds like the same company that does tracking is also the same company that writes directions on how to build that bookcase that came from China.
