Just think how you could turn 'em out if you had 2,347 helpers!

The music was very Cool!

Wow. Some of those jigs are amazing! The door/mold thing used to clamp braces and the spin thing used to install binding might be doable for the home gamer. And what was that device used to install the bridge... some sort of alignment tool. I’m surprised the fretwork was done by hand and not machine

There is another video of a Chinese Violin factory which is also very cool

Many years ago Richard Bruné used to outsource a line of guitars to Asturias in Japan.
He then visited the factory and reported to American Lutherie a factory tour describing the many jigs and machineries used in Asturias. A small company but the workflow was quite impressive.
Since then Bruné copied some of the jigs he saw (for instance the machine to shape the neck for the spindle joint) etc. and become more productive.
Robert Ruck was also known for working with a lot of self-made jigs and was incredibly productive, having made more than 1000 guitars in his career.

My friend Mario Cesar Oretea (MCO guitars) has been building guitars at his home only within the las year or two. He was modifying and repairing guitars for a long time. His first builds are all Thin body acoustic electrics. His first or second full body flamenco to traditional design was just finished on Monday.... I saw it with poly urethane finish Monday night, no machines or frets or anything playable yet. On Thursday night he was already using it on the gig lol! And I mean he installed electronics and set it all up etc. so he’s working pretty fast too I think!

In 25 years they'll have fully replaced all but a handful of staff with machines. Progress?

I know a guy who recently quit his job at PRS because they changed their assembly line. They used to have workers switch up to different jobs and now they do the same job day in and day out. Sounds terrible.

But that ain't nothing.

- Looks as if for such lines fret wire ought to be delivered with excess, so that it can be leveled in then, independently from eventual necks deviation.

One thing certainly not happening anymore in such production is green wood. Meanwhile they must be making sure about such.

Had a soft but really lovely sounding acoustic bass from Chinese cheapo mill. ... Until its soundboard badly warped.


Also own a sweet parlor that must have come from such a place. A lucky strike like they appear to come about among batches from time to time.


Watching that rushing process hurts, though. A bit similar to like how people are treated in some of late elderly homes. (Sort of kind, yet impersonal.)

Then again, weird way of fascination about what utmost of automatisation and serial processing can do. -Despite of indiscriminate treatment of individual wood sections properties. (-Like a certain highly deemed traditional manufacturer of nylon guitars used to do since long time ago already.)
