now playing: additional quality check with Chris Hong.

Postby Toptube » Wed May 03, 2017 9:42 pm

On the latest Question and Answer Facebook video: Jeff said that 3 weeks ago, they added a secondary quality control check, with Chris Hong. Chris is now hands on with every guitar. He has authorization to deal with anything he may find. If for some reason he isn't sure about something, he then takes it to Jeff, for a final judgement.

Jeff offered an example of something he hopes to eliminate, with this extra step: Wrong color pickups (not a direct quote).
---------

I think the idea is to catch some of these problems we see slip through. Wrong color hardware. A poor tape line. Finish blemishes, etc.

I think its really great that they are doing this. And it is led by someone (Chris H) who has been there for some time.

Cheers to Kiesel!

I can hear Gordon Ramsey at the window looking at an entree before it goes out, screaming, "You donkey!"

Something along the lines of "this DBEB is so underdeepened you BBEB'ed the bevel!"
