This guy started on YouTube teaching and stuff, got a shit load of followers then decided

To let his followers vote on what they wanted in a guitar. He got them made in China then

Recently made in Korea , he's still doing it (see link).

Seems like a great model for a business to me.

i would interested to see what a vote here would produce?

Geoff

No you miss the point :)

The theme of this thread was to get peoples ideas for a WMG. That's what chapman does, so I thought

Maybe the same process could be used here.

I was not suggesting for one second we can all get our guitars made in China :)

Jeez

Same here.

Besides, all things China have the prerequisite lead filling.

I totally got your point. You are missing the OP's point. We don't want spec built guitars from China. We're talking about a quality built, USA made instrument.

It was a sarcastic comment on all things China.

Do it. Double cutaway with the long standard headstock. An affordable, but quality wood.....alder, maybe? Is that cheaper than hog? Basswood?

Flat top but with bevels, unless that runs the price up. Sustainblock for uniqueness.

P90s or HBs.

Pics of the build as it progresses. I am a huge fan of Lil Dawg Amps. A one Man operation out of Sacramento. In fact, all my amps except one are Dawgs. He sends pics along the way and that is exciting. It bonds the customer to the amp before it ever arrives.

He is unique in that he builds to the working man as well. Classic circuits that very few people build in some cases. EXCELLENT customer service responsiveness and top shelf quality. No bling unless you want to pay more for it. Inexpensive hand-wired high quality tube amps that sound awesome.

He has made it work in the amp world. No affiliation except a happy repeat customer. His model is working.
