    I do try to avoid handmade stuff as far as possible. It's always the areas of greatest human intervention that cause the biggest problems. When I see the word craftsman I will generally turn and go somewhere else. Plek machines can produce good results, but they can also produce garbage. The reason for this is that the machines themselves are still kind of working prototypes, kludgy, and need a lot of human input to work. They aren't stable, and probably they never will be because the volume that should drive development simply isn't there. The ones on factory production lines are probably going to give better results than those in shops because they will be set up for one guitar type and operated, not by a craftsman who thinks he knows better, but by a technician who actually knows what he has to do to get a working output.
