As it turns out, DJ Rodi in Long Beach has teamed up with his brother (a wood worker) to produce a very similar line (photo above). I took a look at ‘em this past week and they’re legit: well-constructed, well-reinforced with solid hardware, comes standard in a blond wood but can be ordered with darker stains. Fits about 80 7″s or so. $120 each, not including shipping, which makes them about $20 less expensive than Face’s model (plus you won’t have to pay for shipping from JPN). Interested? Holler at Rodi.
I’m working with them to design a custom box according to some specs I’m hoping to see realized and it sounds like Rodi and his brother are open to custom jobs so feel free to ask.
