Re: Ibanez Custom Shop - About Time?
Dear Sir, you are exactly correct. It is always very hard for me to find qualified guitar makers for our shop. Since I'm the manager/shop foreman so that I have to train these people by myself.Usually takes about 5 to 6 years to get our guitar builder classification regardless of their experience. Our guitars are made here in Sun Valley California NOT in Japan. We do make every necks and bodies from scratch including truss rods and some of the hardwares too. We don't cut corners. I really wanted our guitars to be available to the public and I really mean it.
Er, I guess that clears up who has the most knowledge of how businesses operate between Dex and Olie when Mr. Hosono (who IS the businessman) sides with Olie.
