Of course, I could be 110 percent wrong and perfection (X<$600) has been achieved by synergies CAD-CAM and of course, the requisite "magic wand." LOL
Agree. With today's mills and CNC equipment, tolerances are much tighter than even 10 years ago. But even with the tight tolerances, most of the top name custom builders still put in a lot of hand file work to loosen up the tolerances to get that perfect "functional" fit.
I can wait for a year or two to pass on a new model. I'm buying something to keep for a long time, so getting in with the first wave it not a priority.
