Is a California and USA built Masi'sa better built frame in workmanship Masi's built in Italy by the Masi"s. In my opinion looking at both (and it is a lot of USA Masi's) I vote for USA built

A lot of the big name US frame builders came from CA Masi. B. Baylis for one. Brian mentioned to me once when he was hired at CA Masi he was asked to make 20 more copies of a lug filed by an Italian in charge. The Italian came back after Brian was done looked at all 21 lugs 20 by Brian 1 by the Italian but all lugs mixed up now in pile and told Brian this one was no good. It was the one by Italian My Italian Masi (not by Masi's) is very nice but I seen a lot of CA Masi's and they are over the top. I am interested in your opinions Charles Nighbor Walnut Creek, CA
