One Response to Watch robots making Fender electric guitars

  1. Mike in Burlington says:

    I spent 20 years in the manufacturing business, and people get weepy eyed for no good reason over the notion of handcrafting. I want my food handcrafted and I want my suits handmade, but anything with technology involved I want to machine to do it. they don’t get hangovers, or pissed off at their boss or have a “I don’t give a fuck” day

    I don’t want a robot grilling my steak, but I do want a robot welding up my car .
