    This was my first DIY guitar project. It was super fun! The instructions were really easy to follow, and everything went together as it should.
    The fretwork was actually spot on, so I haven’t had to touch up any of them.
    The only problem I had was that the nut height was way too high and threw off intonation, so I sanded down and installed a GraphTech nut. Now this is one of my favourite guitars. Worth every cent.

    First kit went together great. The fit was top notch. The neck was true and the frets ready to go. I had a little trouble with the wiring but after an e-mail I was contacted by a gentleman named Matt who helped me through it over the phone. Great service…Thanks Matt. I was surprised at how good the pick-ups sound. Great guitar and loads of fun.

    I’m having the time of my life working on this sucker. Top notch quality on all the pieces and parts. I’m just trying not to rush the finishing process because I want to try it out. This is highly recommended for anyone who wants to relish in a true sense of accomplishment.

    This was my first adventure with a set-style neck.
    I was apprehensive and concerned about building a kit with a neck that I could not adjust after gluing it in place.
    I trialed the fit (nice close fit in the pocket) and measured the scale of the guitar determining that the bridge location was appropriate for the intonation adjustments offered by the moveable bridge pieces.
    After gluing in the neck and adding strings, I was relieved to find that I was able to achieve good intonation.
    With that worry out of the way, the rest of the assembly went smoothly.
    I found the wiring diagram was not giving me the “blended” effect I required when both pickups were engaged.
    However, I found a LP wiring diagram on the net that gave me good blending and all was well.
    the robust block through the body from neck to tail and the attachment points of the bridge into that block gives way better sustain than a floating bridge on an arch-top hollow body design, so I really prefer this semi-hollow body design to a full hollow body when it comes to amplifying the instrument and having access to the full sonic range of an electric guitar.
    Overall, I am satisfied with my new great-looking instrument and I do love showing it off.

    Quand j’ai commandé ce kit ESK 35, je n’avais pas remarquer que les 4 1/2 étoiles représentait le niveau de difficulté. Je peux vous dire que j’ai maintenant terminé et que j’ai réussi! Après quelques ajustement, je l’ai connecté et elle fonctionne.

    Pour repondre a renaud.mariele les 4-1/2 etoiles sont pour la qualité et les guitar sous le prix sont pour le niveau de difficulté.1 etant le plus facile et 5 le plus dur

    I have built over 25 different kits and this was my 1st attempt at a hollow body project. I loved the way it turned out and all parts fit extremely well together. I would highly encourage watching videos on how to install the electronics. Made the project very enjoyable. This is going to be my main instrument from now on!
