    This was a lot of fun to put together. The nice wide fret-board is comfortable to my large hands. The vibrato works quietly and well. I did as much custom work to personalize it as I could, Walnut bound finger-rest, walnut heel cap. Dual “mud switches” instead of tone knobs. Hillbilly correct switch knobs. The roller bridge base covered the old stud holes and I pinned it. I custom cut and bound the headstock as well as bookmatched a walnut veneer and inlaid my personal emblem. Walnut truss rod cover.Custom paint and polish, buff and shine. It’s one of the best guitars I have played. Loads of fun to build.

    Guitar arrived in a few short days. Was well packaged inside the case. I did notice a crack in the wood on the interior of the guitar but this did not penetrate through to the back side. I will fix this so that it does not get any worse. The overall guitar was fairly rough and will need some extensive sanding to get nice a smooth. I am looking at simply putting on a clear coat with maybe a light natural dye colour to bring out the wood grain a little more. The pick guard was not cut very straight and the beveled edge was poorly shapen. The pick guard will require some filing to correct. As the description noted, the frets on both the top and bottom side of the fret board are sharp and also will need to be filed down. The case looks to be very well made and the guitar fits nice and snug. I plan on doing a nice ebony inlay into the head stock to add personalization to the guitar. Overall I am quite happy with what has been provided to assemble albeit the instructions could have had a few photos included to assist in the assembly.

    I’ve just received this kit, and I won’t be building it unto after the first of the year, (2018). However, I am considered a Master Woodworker, and this will be my first guitar kit. At this point, I can tell you that the kit arrived in perfect shape. I opened the kit and inspected all the parts included, and found no defects or damage from shipment. All the hardware is intact, and appears to align with the pre-drilled holes. The neck and body is a tight fit, maybe will perform a bit of hand sanding to allow for glue flow out. From a woodworkers standpoint, the kit is very nice, and I look forward to continued research and assembly of the guitar. I will update this review during construction of the kit.

    Well, consider this an update to my previous review, as I can’t figure out how to add to the review. The GFK-10 kit is complete, and, I must say, I learned a lot about guitar building. I could not be happier with the way the guitar turned out, and, if I could, I would attach a picture or two. The neck settled into place with no problems, but the finishing was the real time suck. You have to be patient to get the lacquer to turn out just right, with almost a factory finish and reflection. The addition of the electronics went without a hitch, using mono-filament fishing line and a spring hook. I covered the bottom of the tremolo tailpiece with thin adhesive backed nylon to keep the finish protected during installation, and everything lined up perfect. Just a little more work on the frets, and I’ll start playing again. Overall, as a first kit, and being a master woodworker, I am totally impressed with this kit. I’m hoping Santa brings me the SG kit with the flamed maple top next! This has been a blast, and I can’t wait to do it again!
