    To be honest, before I dropped that amount of money on a guitar, I'd want to know exactly who is building it. Then I'd run straight down the road and hand 3.5k to Patrick Eggle for a Macon.

    I do not see myself spending that amount of money on a guitar even if it's a BS Chapman

    Agreed. This guitar company is a couple hours from me:

    https://www.cmgguitars.com

    If I had that kind of money, I'd call and see if I could drive there and pick everything I wanted.

    I don't want to sound like I'm continually trashing Chapman guitars, but the Frank Brothers Guitars start off at only 2.5k if I've got my information correct, and they're supposed to be the absolute shit.

    I'd love to read a review from anyone on this forum who has, or has tried, one.

    I've never had the money for a custom made guitar, but then I don't need one. I think you'd need to be a proper guitar connoisseur - or at least a proper gigging guitarist - to justify the expense. I'm neither of those. You also have to possess the funds (I do not).

    I still like the idea of Chapman custom builds, though. I'd like it to be successful and I'd like to see and hear the results of their custom shop.
