Mahelcaya Posted March 3, 2004 Report Share Posted March 3, 2004 Ok , I have a bit of a moral problem here : I made only 2 guitars for now. But (with my pleasure !) had 2 requests already, for a custom handmade guitar , from 2 different friends of mine ! Ok I am dealing with one of them........ His budged is a bit low : 600 Euros ( 730 $ averagely ). My problem is that I want to make a great guitar for him, so I'll be setting up good Tuners, a nice TOM bridge ( thank god it's not floyd rose ) , but I would like to put 2 EMG HZ 3 passive hums.....just to make it sound good enough. The woods are not so expensive Mohogany body about 30 $, maple (one piece) neck and indian rosewood fingerboard. But I was checking the order bill and only for all the hardware and woods I'll be spending 450 $ + glues + stain dyes + shellac + Taxes from the Italian customs ( 80 $ at least ) + 30 $ shipping + TIME !!!!!!! That would leave me with about 150 $ maybe of work money........well I was going to do it anyway , because I like to build guitars. Should I save some money on the pickups? Tell him I need more money ? Or just do it, with no profit ? your opinion is important hehehehe Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
