CNC vs Pin Routers

This is the support forum for G&L and Tribute by G&L basses. Please limit the discussion to G&L and Tribute by G&L.

No sales or advertisements, no matter how well veiled, are permitted - not even a pointer elsewhere. Discussion of pricing of used instruments (What's It Worth?) is perfectly fine so long as it doesn't turn into a sales feeler. However, as per G&L policy, there can be no discussion of new instrument pricing. Please contact your favorite dealer and kindly keep the quote to yourself.

CNC vs Pin Routers

Back in the early 2000s over at the KCC (the old green GuitarsByLeo site) there was a hew and a cry from the "handmade" zealots over G&L's change to CNC from the Leo era pin routers used for roughing out bodies and necks. I was initially in the handmade camp for a while, but the benefits of CNC far out-weighs the so-called mojo of pin routers. Plus, and WAY more importantly, CNC saves a lot of bloodshed.

While this isn't G&L specific, this is a video showing how the two work.

As an aside, the Laguna mill that Novo Guitars uses is a nice machine but G&L's HASS is bigger and more production oriented. The output of both is equally good.
