Haha, you'd think wouldn't you?.. But no, if I were to buy his stuff (all of their instruments are Custom Hand-Made) then I'd say that would end up costing me well over a grand.. At least.
If I had that amount of money then it would be going on that Custom Snare that I wanted haha, so I'm sticking on a budget here.
I've looked into some EMG's and Seymour Duncan's and some of them aren't actually as dear as I expected.. It would only cost around £300 to fully build one, and because I'll be doing it bit by bit, I don't need to spend lots of money that I don't have in one go.
