    Perfection in engineering and craft approached through repetition, standardization, and small changes over time.   

    Treating the 1950's T-style like the violin or cello: as having general character that is set.

    A reasonable attempt is made to source only parts made in the US or Japan.

    The Gotoh vintage style staggerd tuners negate the need for a string tree.  They have split shafts with holes in the middle.  When wound propperly they are essentially locked, and leave no sharp string ends sticking out. 

    Long Switchcraft input jacks are used on the electrosocket, so you shouldn't run into any issues with your 90 deg plugs.
