Great job, Luke!
I sort of hope that there is damage.  I'm absolutely in love with my custom one.
 I don't know.  I had the unit first (well, second, after it went to an Austin meet) and it sounded the same that everybody (who didn't have the tour unit) was describing it.  I think it'll go on back to Luke at some point for a check up.  It looked to be in pretty much pristine shape when I got it, and I know it was in pristine shape when I sent it back out. If I am honest, I slightly do hope that the tour unit had some sort of issue with it.  I am completely in love with...
It's too bad you won't be there. It's fun every year!  I'd even take you out to one of the many fine local breweries / distilleries / eateries. :-)

PM Sent, as well.
I'd suggest you contact Luke directly.
I believe I am the source of the dip numbers, but they came from listening to a sweep on YouTube so they can and SHOULD be taken with grain of salt.  There is definitely a noticeable dip in the lower mids, though.  The numbers I got didn't come from a signal generator, which is what I'd need to do to get concrete numbers.  They just came from a sine wave sweep on youtube and my own ears. The dip definitely isn't there on the measurements, but I can hear it by ear.   I...
The universal shell is just about perfect.  Luke did an amazing job on it!
