Does the custom control layout make the guitar non-returnable?

I would have to assume so.
Current Carvins:
2010 Bolt (Candy Red Metallic)
2013 Bolt Plus (Koa)
2016 Black n Blue VSEVEN
2017 TT SCB6

Wish List
Some sort of multiscale 6 HSS with RAD ASH
JB Numbers Guitar (July sale has given me the itch!)

I just don't understand why you would get a custom guitar that isn't returnable when you're basing that guitar off a guitar that is returnable, superior, and virtually the same price.

It's pretty simple actually. I don't like or want a Majesty. Period. I do want a guitar made to the specs I want, in the woods and colour I want. Can you get a Majesty with the options and choices I've made on my guitar? Nope. I do like the layout of JP's guitars. I've played and owned six of them for 20 years so it is my preferred layout regardless of artist or brand association. I was hugely Impressed (and slightly surprised) at how good the quality of my V7X was. It is more than a match for ANY of my JP sigs. And that is a fact, not opinion. Maybe the EBMM trem is a bit better, but I still don't think either are as good as an original Lo Pro Edge (in my opinion).

Here in the UK a brand new base model Majesty is $1100 MORE than what I'm paying for my incredibly highly optioned Kiesel (upgraded top, mastergrade fingerboard. special finish). That is not virtually the same price.

I stood next to a Majesty for the first time this weekend. I was surprised how tiny the guitar seemed. I didn't hold it but it was eye level 2 feet from me. Great and unique looking instrument for sure.

In the mass market, I believe that EBMM is similar to Kiesel in that they're forward thinking with new designs. The Majesty, Armada (yum), St. Vincent, etc.

From a quality standpoint they're tough to beat. My Axis is jaw dropping. I love switching back and forth b/w the Axis, Carvin DC400CW, and N4. They're all so different.
