Re: Christopher Woods?

Yeah, it shouldn't take 8 months for an unfinished body when you have a CNC. A week tops.

Re: Christopher Woods?

I think he is a bit faster with bodies as they are less time intensive. Check out the few he has on **** right now I think he is quoting a 2 week turnaround.

Re: Christopher Woods?

I really have no idea from the neck jobs from Chris, but I sent from Spain an old RG in parts and he made me a fully customized work with paint through all body, headstock and back body, and set up completely all guitar. Also finally he made me a new body for the project and was completely perfect in quality and looks completely similar to Ibanez (maybe better in wood quality than the recent general Ibanez bodies). The result was and amazing looking guitar with a really good quality on finishes in all parts.
Shipping overseas was made in the best conditions. Hardcase and guitar was perfectly protected and put in a box. Delivery time was around 3 weeks, normal transit time talking of international and in August 2005.
Comunication was always perfect. Every mail I sent was answer asap. He show me that is a serious person who love his job and take good care of it. I was really happy with his work and may in the future can we work out again.

So the necks seems really cool ones. And for the rest I write this words so you must know that Chris is a person in which you can trust. Word¡¡¡¡

Cheers¡¡¡

Re: Christopher Woods?

Hello everyone, I saw this thread a couple months ago and have been checking it once in awhile to get the scoop on what opinions are being stated. I appreciate the comments both good and bad. Thanks to everyone who has my back with the good comments and apologies to those of you who have had a negative experience. I'd be writing a book if I addressed every comment so I am not going to go there but I do want to say something about eggs and omlets,,,, good decisions and bad ones,,,, having learned when to say no,,,, The bottom line is that I have grown over the past few years and that has been good and a struggle. But the reward of turning the last screw into the cover plate of a just finished guitar is pretty cool. -- By the way, Build time on unfinished bodies is 1 week if the routes are standard. As I make progress with the CNC build times for guitar necks will be reduced as well.

Re: Christopher Woods?

The one thing that would be helpful is consistant updates on the website.
I know it's a pain, but a 4 week quote for a neck has turned into 4 months so far. I understand the growing pains with a blossoming business, but keeping your customers clued in is important. I'm running into similar problems with my new side project, but above all, I keep people informed on progress either with a quick phone call or email or site update.

Re: Christopher Woods?

The market for aftermarket Ibanez replacement parts is huge. There are far more people who want and will pay than there are people prepared or able to do the work. If you can improve your ability to level set expectations you certainly have an opportunity here. There'd literally be no competition.

Re: Christopher Woods?

Christopher will now be offering the ZR route on his Ibanez replacement bodies. Good news for those wanting a 24 fret ZR equipped axe.

Re: Christopher Woods?

Good call, Chris does excellent work. I should have mine back from SCS in a few more weeks with the new clearcoat.
