I feel the same way. Just looking for a little education while we are on the topic.As stated above its labor intensive and there is better out there. As far as cost effective well thats another deal that is debated alot. I will get a good set of rods someday ,but right now tuning and keeping the output real is all I am concerned about.
i guess im not following you here. thats like saying my moms chili is the same as the #### that comes in a can, when in all reality its not.Don't think just because they are from dp, gear head, tw, swamps etc that they are custom.
they all use base templates and thus are canned tunes, just a much better can.
