By that I mean done by a luthier with zero name brand?

I don't recall seeing one.

Wouldn't that be the perfect way to get a guitar, EXACTLY the way you want it?

Ironic… because at the START of the band.
Paul had his V with the left horn shorter than the other.
Gene had his bass.
Both made by Charlie LoBue

I wouldn’t consider the original light guitar from 79 completely custom as it’s a modified Gibson LP Junior
