I found ways to cut back on labor and focused my efforts primarily on sound and it turned out to be an excellent guitar, especially for the money, but there it sits, apparently too cheap to be any good. It's frustrating and I doubt I'll ever do it again.
I had the exact same experience, one of the Torres guitars of simplicity (it wasn't that
simple). A guitar sub £1,000 and in 6 months I think I received one single email. I pulled it. What's the point?
I ain't going back there again, I'll leave it to others. I've tried the race to the bottom.
Strange as it may seem but in 1990 I was getting more (in real terms) than I am now for my most expensive model. I had a lot less experience too.
