Hands down - no contest. I am so not worthy of the geek title in relation to that thread it is not even funny. Not only do you get a step-by-step, photo-by-photo breakdown of building a truly hand-made, luthier-built guitar like a Les Paul (vs. a parts-o-caster - granted, BigShooter actually makes his parts vs. me who just buys and assembles, so his stuff counts a lot more than mine in terms of "craft").
Bolding mine...

Wordman I know you don't mean to insinuate that my guitar making skills are subpar*, so I'm not pissed or anything, but this does bring up an interesting question:

Why, in your eyes, do you think a Les Paul is anymore of a "hand-made, luthier-built guitar" than a Caster of some sort?

*However, I'll freely admit that the guy in that thread is a little ahead of me in the skill department. I'll get there though
