Tru dat.

Gluing is gluing though, Gibson isn't doing it any different to anyone else. It's easier to not make the mistake than it is to correct it, if the glue has hardened it will be difficult to...

I watched a Cort tour and they have a sweet looking finishing room that sprays the guitars automatically (It might paint them too, I've forgotten).

Finishing is one of the few things that isn't done...

That may have nothing to do with quality, if that guitar doesn't use a scarf joint there is short grain in the headstock which weakens it. I've heard of Gibson headstocks snapping, if something is...

I can confirm I was that person. Me and my Buddy went up to Argos and I got an Amp set for 150 (maybe 200). We took it home on the bus, he carried the amp and I carried the guitar.

Why does it cost so much to make a violin?

Holy shit you weren't kidding, a Google search and seemingly regular people are talking about a 5k violin not being good enough and considering a 20k one.

If tonewood wasn't a thing everyone would just buy the cheapest guitar and then put their favourite stuff in it.
