How it's made, anyone see the Godin factory???

On Discovery channel during the week, they ran "How it's made" electric guitars made at the Godin factory. Holy crap they crank em out. Watching the fret dressing done on a belt sander all at once was impressive, and it made perfect sense. They showed all the jogs they used for pre-wiring the electronic assemblies, and fret leveling. It was just a fun show to watch.

Anyone else see it?

Thats a cool show. I didn't see the Godin factory one but I saw the Yorkville Sound one where they made a Traynor tube amp. It was prety cool. All of the electronic componenets were soldered at once with some kind of solder bath. It was neat.

I watch that show with my daughters, but I have not seen that one. However, I did see the one where they made D'Addario strings.

USA Jackson necks (used to?) are built by Godin. Never saw the show.

The cymbal one was great. I was surprised at how much hand work went into them.

I'm glad that shows a lot of music related things. Even the one on the trombone was cool.
