I do use some power tools but for the most part my guitars are built by hand with saws, rasps, files, chisels, scrapers etc. Not to wander off too far into voodoo territory, but I do believe that an instrument wich was build by hand with attention and care does feel diffent in one’s hands.
I try to overall only use the best materials and components available to me. I use BareKnuckle or Häussel Pickups. For Hardware I mainly use ABM, Schaller and Hipshot. I make the nuts out of bone or I use graphtech nuts. The guitars all come strung and set up with D’Addario 10-46 strings.
