  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Good strong case with beautiful looks. Just started on the kit but it looks marvelous and with the upgrades I have planned for should sound and look just like an Epiphone Emperor. Highly recommend this kit.

    The kit came delivered in just a couple of days after ordering without any damage. The guitar body did have a small crack on the interior that I will need to glue. The crack did not go through the body to the back of the guitar. The neck frets where a little sharp but these were easily handled with a little fancy file work. The finish was fairly rough so both the body and neck did require a fair bit of sanding to get the protective coating off and down to the natural wood. After sanding with 180, then 240, and then with 320 grit, the guitar was absolutely smooth.

    I’m now working on electronics assembly so should have the electronics installed before Xmas. I plan on doing an Ebony inlay on the head stock in my own design and finishing the guitar in a dark walnut stain. I will complete the entire assembly of the guitar before deciding if I will do any upgrading, if any.

    The guitar case that came with the kit appears to be of excellent quality. The guitar fits inside nice and snug inside the plush interior, the case latches are robust, and the exterior crocodile skin finish looks amazing.

    The “Chat Now” feature was great to use and I received some very helpful hints during our conversation on the assembly of the guitar kit. I highly recommend this feature be used if you get stuck on any portion of the assembly of your guitar.

    Overall, I am extremely satisfied with the purchase experience, and assembly. (Although the instructions could have been slightly more detailed with a few pictures) But no foul.

    Quality for the price is excellent. Not if but when I build another guitar I will buy the parts separate from each other with some custom parts and ideas of my own. The guitar case also is of good quality and worth purchasing. The only part I could not use where the strings. All where short, two strings where two inches too short to reach the tuning pegs. The cost of the kit with case in U.S. dollars $340.00 stain, top coat, and a new set of strings later I was in it for $360.00 and less than 10 hours of pleasurable work. If you are reading this you must have an interest in building a guitar, I encourage you to pursue this interest. I am very happy and pleased with my first build.
