    Just finished my Solo Beatles Violin Style Bass kit. This was my first attempt at building a guitar. I had a lot of fun completing this project. The service was great. I cannot thank the staff enough for all the support I received. It was precise and fast. I look forward to my next project. My rating for this is as high as can be given.

    A bit more challenging than a bolt-on with a fixed bridge but a lot of fun to work on. I spent quite a bit of time getting the stain right but was very happy with the end result. A really fine sounding bass as well Thanks Matt for your help with the wiring instructiona.

    So far, am very happy with the kit which I am slowly working on assembly. I would have given 5 stars but for one issue. The wiring diagram for the control panel is entirely useless and I will have to call for help when I get to that point in assembly as the instructions give no information on where to solder the pickup wires. Otherwise, lot’s of fun!

    I have two store bought guitars (acoustic/electric & electric). This will be my first bass and the first time at attempting to build my own. I received this kit a few days ago and haven’t had the chance to start on it yet. I have opened it up and inspected everything though. I noticed it was missing a couple pieces and with an email send to support, Matt was quick to get back to me and stated the parts would be sent out without issue. He answered a couple of my questions at the same time. I did notice upon extreme close inspection of the body that the binding has a small gap and the wood looks a little thin on one corner in one place but I don’t expect it to be much of an issue. All the holes are pre-drilled except for the tailpiece and it would be nice if the holes for the pick guard were not pre-drilled to give an easier option for the customer to decide whether to use it or not.

    On the hole I am happy with the kit and will build another (if I can complete this one with it looking and sounding nice).

    I have not yet built the kit, as i am experimenting with a modified sunburst finish using medical grade dyes (wife used to work in a microbiology lab and got me some outdated, but usable dyes/stains.) The kit seems easy and reasonably well finished as it arrives. Just some fine tuning needed on the finish to make it glow. Instructions for the electronics seem a bit confusing, but i am an electronic idiot. I will seek help on that part from a few friends. All in all, so far i am very pleased with the kit.
