Please go ahead and move this to FAQ if you think it's right, but I thought I might get better results here. Allow me to preface this by noting that I haven ever ordered a custom anything ever from anyone I've had an epiphany the other day that I want to get a custom neck for my Korean import BC Rich Warlock. I mean, there's no way I'll ever land a USA custom with maple fretboard, so I figure this route is the closest there is. I tried googling "Chicago luthiers"... but the results are all music lessons and luthiery training courses. Does anyone have advise for finding "the right luthier" for my needs? How to search, or maybe one of you guys knows someone? You figure if I call up one of these music schools or luthiery schools and say "hey I don't want lessons I just want you to build me a neck" that there's a good probability they will say "Oh yeah sure we can do that" ? Will some luthiers be offended if I ask them to make a clone of a well known brand?
