Long time reader of this thread, but first post. For starters, thanks for all the informative posts and interesting discussions. This thread has been very helpful for me, although a bit expensive. I purchased a McAllister with the combination tap sole during the last AE sale, and it just arrived yesterday. I really like it, and am now considering if I should jump at getting a custom version in shell. Sounds like several others are doing the same. Just curious why folks are picking the McAllister and not the Cambridge for the custom order? Is it just a preference on sole thickness?
Thanks lostron. So if I wanted to take Mr. Grangaard up on his MTO offer and got a cappuccino shell version of the McAllister, sounds like this would end up the same as a cappuccino shell Cambridge.
Related to Paul's generous offer, does anyone know how "custom" you can go? Would it be possible to get a MacNeil or other LWB on the 5 last?
