•Quality of the wood (neck AND top).
•Quality of the hand-finishing: *fretwork, inlays, clear (pick a spec)
•Quality in the finish (half-naked strippers can be found on HALF the USAC models....nice...very classy...now who's the flake?). *The top on the ART can't touch the one on the UCEW's....thickness, A-count, etc.
There's a reason I play my CST and ART more than my other guitars. *Actually, there are MANY reasons. *I'll take quality over quantity any day.
Do I have to bring the ART and CST and GEAR and ARCH over....again? *:biggrin: *If you want to A-B them, just call.
