The guy who makes these, Jay Monterose, certainly has a high opinion of his talents!
http://www.premierguitar.com/Magazine/Issue/2009/Jan/5_Tele_Style_Builders_You_Should_Know.aspx?Page=6I make every piece by hand personally—I consider it a real art. Others have tried and failed to match my quality of craft or tone, but it all starts in my hands.
Why aren’t more guys doing it your way?
Mass producers can’t do it my way. The handmade quality comes from being a true craftsman and artist. I have total command of my skills and tools. Most guitar guys don’t have the same expertise, knowledge and creative ideas.
$45 per knob, darn right I want High Art and not just some piece of crap that'll turn the guitar up and down.... :hello2:
