Custom implies that you get every feature you want. That doesn't happen. You choose a custom builder for what they offer, they don't let you choose anything you want. If you could choose anything you wanted (in the realm of 1911 custom options) then you could call it custom. Here's my build list:

Frame with custom serial number (Jem or Caspian is fine)
Pete Single style High cut
Clark style Tiger tooth stippling
Raised rib slide with Elliason rear sight/Smith revolver style
Undercut plain front sight
Vertical wide cocking serrations on back of slide w/2 matching serration front
Install S&A ambi mag catch (will provide part)
Safari Arms Grip Safety
Mueschke Thumb safety (will provide)

See how complicated it can get...
