As a guitar collector, I have been wanting to add a specific type of guitar to my collection that I pictured in my head and could not find on any shelf. So I looked into a custom guitar and a fellow musician told me about Born. Boy did they deliver! My MG-Carve has become my favorite guitar in my collection. It's natural, smooth, and feels broken in like I have been playing it for years. What struck me the most was the quality and workmanship put into it for the price. As my friend puts it (who has over 40 guitars in his collection), it sounds and feels like it should cost a lot more. Now he is having his “Born” shortly. Could not be happier with the final result and how accurate the guitar was to my vision!
