The word "custom" gets thrown around way too much. A good maker has his name on the saddle or at least the name of the shop that has it contracted. Anytime there is no name or brand on the saddle, I suspect the quality.
Judging only from the picture, the leather looks stiff, the hardware looks so-so, and the rear cinch is cheap. What is the tree made of, what kind of buckles are used on the stirrups, and what is the padding like? Frankly it doesn't look very used. The fenders aren't turned and the front billet has no cinch marks on it.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
