It would be much more informative and enjoyable if they would lose the frenzied filming style. You gotta watch it a few times in order to really see what's going on. But perhaps that's the point.

Interesting to see how quickly the pups are wound on the automatic winding machine. At least they are placed "by hand" on the winder; I would be curious to see if the Custom Shop uses the same type of machine for their production models vs. what is used for the "hand wound" pups that folks pay a premium for.

Peegoo: werd. Stop. You are making me jones for a WK Strat. Stop. I listened to WK and the MC5 throughout high school, despite being the only one. Stop. The relicing and finish job on Wayne's sigs are reallly nice. Stop.
