From their website: "Differing from nearly every other major guitar manufacturer, Ayers guitars are ALL completely handmade. There is no CNC machinery in the Ayers factory. The instruments reflect the highest standards of a bygone era when dedication to craft and quality took precedence over speed and quantity. Most of the dedicated staff at Ayers have worked here for over 10 years. Their woodwork and complimentary luthiery skills are second to none in the world."
