Probably the most versatile guitar I have ever played. One of the nicest too.

Are those router motors beefy enough for production work, or is this mostly for fun?

I was expecting to see at least a PC 690 option.

It's considered a hobby machine.
For high-volume production the frame is likely the weak point (flex under high feed rates).

I don't doubt it. You just normally have such superb taste in instruments, so that lameo lookin axe stood out.

I would actually prefer Olympic White to Vintage White, but I think tort on white is classy and understated. not every axe has to look like this:

Every time I look at CNC machines I realize how little interest I have in getting into that side of the guitar business any time soon.

Maybe once I'm selling hundreds of instruments per year, but even then, the OEM support for builders who do that kind of volume is pretty robust.

Independent of the milling and skilled labor involved, maintaining a supply chain of guitar-grade raw lumber is its own challenge.

Of course, I'd probably feel differently if I was building for a living.

I'm gassing for something musical. I think another bass. Maybe buy back that Rev 5 I sold to L-1329 / P-0, and ask for Rocha to build it a fretless neck? Maybe another JD, say a Sequel V-28 fretted to offset my Legend V fretless? Been seriously dreaming of a custom Hanewinkel 5F for ages. Or a Ritter Europa? Something else odd?
*Sigh*

BTW, really happy with my selection of amps and cabs. I could add more. Not sure I'd be better off, but maybe add a different sound. And I'm not playing out. My biggest kick is the basses.

Really want to spend the money on regaining the resources that got bled helping a friend start a business. And a new kitchen. And replacing the wood shack garage extension of a workshop with really blowing it out and building a proper addition. And other home stuff. Let alone that, while helping her build a business, my big trips were out, and I'm dying to see more of the world.

It will all come. But I'm just at the start of rebuilding. And I want everything I've been missing. I wasn't more than a pauper, but I was a pauper with means, and that was enough. To me, that was the world is my oyster!

Now, it's starting to sink in what it will take to rebuild. And I want it all. But none of it will come that fast, and not all of it will come back.

So, what shall I choose for a bass?

If you bought one of these, made a few guitars with it, and decided it wasn't something you had to keep around, could you sell it and not lose your ass on it?

Another Bagend 212 and my amps to be serviced/retubed. The p-bass I have after modding it is pretty fucking awesome, so nothing in the bass section. A Ric might be nice but in no way am I gonna pay what they want for one.

Hard to say. I haven't really seen much of a used market for these yet. I imagine at best I'd be able to recoup 50%.

The more I think about the practicality of this, the more I think it makes sense to just create the designs in CAD and have templates made.

Thats the problem with novel tools like that. It might make your life easier, but how OFTEN it will make your life easier is the real question.

By the time I figure the cost of the machine itself, upgrades to make it large and stiff enough for bass necks, get the additional CAM and control software, build a large table, get precision collets and bits, etc...

I could get a whole bunch of custom templates made and still have enough left over for another bandsaw, larger router table, a few routers, lots of wood, etc etc

It's the pbass I've had since forever (MIA, black, rosewood fretboard). I put a Badass II bridge on there years ago and recently put a Aguilar hot pickup in there along with a controls bypass switch. It mostly stays with the controls bypassed and with some La Bella taper cores it sounds like it wants to rip your head off and shit down your head. I'm happy with how it sounds.
