Fortunately, the pendulum seems to have now swung our way - having a
hand-built item is considered an advantage!

No Way.

Review in GP?  Favourable, of course!!!

If we're producing items in small runs, would we benefit from
specifically-targeted FX? You know, the Allan Holdworth 8-delay system,
Would there be a market for the Hex Fuzz simulator - 10 narrow bandpass
filters with fuzz ccts following, so that if you play a chord each note
falls into a different filter and gets fuzzed (ie converted to square wave)
separately? Ideal for the Robert Fripp types.  And so on.

Just a few thoughts, usually developed when walking my dog.
