    Recently received this bass as a gift…couldn’t be happier. The shipping was fast. The packaging was solid.
    The quality of wood with the precision, pre-drilled holes was virtually perfect. I had intentions of upgrading the hardware and pickups to customize the bass, so I wasn’t too worried about their quality. All the stock parts work well, but I would suggest upgrading the machine heads. All in all, the value of this bass is fantastic.

    The gang at SOLO does it again!! What a guitar. Plays great right out of the box! These kits come fast, well packed, and ready to go. All parts are included and the information these folks give you is outstanding. You can do this…..everyone can do this……I did this and I’m a drummer. I’m limited to my guitar playing ability, but the guys who played this bass love it. I have 2 bass guitars… kit with no instructions that was more expensive and took forever to build, and this kit which was less money and took a long time to finish, but goes together in hours. 3 solder joints and a ground wire….plug it in…..JAMMIN’ Throw away the doubts and buy one and you’ll see the difference SOLO offers. You will probably get another one when you see the ease of assembly, and quality that shows right out of the box. My son, his friends, and all the folks who play these guitars say that their very nice instruments. THANX to the gang at SOLO for a fine product at a great price!!!

    My first SOLO kit was at my door in about four days…everything well packaged. In addition to the excellent instructions, I took my time reviewing all sorts of vids on the net before I started sanding and painting…a learning process as I went along…SOLO was always quick to respond to any questions. Painting was a bit harder than I expected, but persistence on getting it right eventually paid off. Installed the hardware, tweaked the neck, and plugged it in….something magic about hearing those first notes from something I created from a bunch of parts in a box. …I learned much during this process and like many others who have enjoyed the SOLO experience, will order my second kit first thing next week…

    I recently purchased my first SOLO kit and this was the one. It took me some time to assemble it, but you can tell that all pre-drilled holes are very well placed!

    I can see that all hardware parts are not top shape, but I too would really suggest changing only the tuners, I changed all other parts including pick ups and made this baby active by drilling an extra hole on it.

    Be just careful, the pre-drilled holes are for the parts that come with the kit. The pickguard for example, is not a standard fender-like pickguard, so if you buy one somewhere else, be advised new holes will be necessary, which for me was not a problem.

    Instructions for the actual wood parts and simple hardware are pretty straight-forward. Wiring in another hand could be more clear, though, for a passive instrument, you can’t go wrong with the soldering.

    Simple oil in the wood, some sanding and drilling skills might be required

    I totally recommend buying this baby…
