    Best bang for the buck ? As far as I’m concerned. Ordered on line on a Monday and showed up Friday afternoon. On time for Christmas. Will definitely buy more from SOLO. When this project is done ✅

    Ordered May 4th, received on the 7th. Can’t complain about delivery. Everything packaged nicely, all parts are there, neck and body are beautiful and require very little prep. Will definitely buy again. Highly recommend.

    I have to say that I was very pleased with the quality of the kit. It only took 4 days for it to arrive, and it was well packaged, which is great because Fed Ex mangled the box, but the kit was undamaged, so big props there. The only issues I have are that I would like some assembly pictures in the manual, and the wiring diagram, to be honest is very bad. This is my first guitar build so I know nothing about the wiring… But to be clear, very pleased with the kit good quality, just minor issues for the first time builder. I will buy from them again.

    Had a blast putting this one together. Nice alder body, not sure how I will finish it. Took a while to get the neck the to the standards I like, but, now the action is really good, torsion rod adjustment was not extreme, just a few frets needed leveling and the “fall” enhanced just a tad.
    Man, I can shred and riff away on this thing. The Floyd Rose style stuff is great. I get the strings locked down and they resist detuning big time. Balancing the bridge is the hardest part, but, that’s the design. The kit’s hardware was surprisingly good since this hardware sold alone from some suppliers can be near the price of the kit.
    I really like how you can take all the tension out of the strings by fully depressing the whammy bar, trapping something under the raised rear of the bridge piece to hold it in place and then taking off the neck. Do some work on the electronics, put the pick guard back on, screw on the neck, remove the item under the back of the bridge piece and bingo the guitar is in magically in tune and ready to go!

    So first time buying a DIY kit and I tell ya I loved every minute of putting this wonderful guitar together . and I don’t want to paint it I just want to clear coat the thing its so pretty with the natural wood and the gold hardware .It went together nicely and turned out amazing and sounds amazing . I only had to adjust the truss rod a little for my playing likes and as one of the other buyers stated the wiring diagram not good at all . Luckily I have a book that covers almost every wiring configuration possible so I looked in there and wah la I was up and jamming in no time flat. ..I just love everything about it . And for the money you can’t get a better guitar it plays and sounds as good as any of my Gibson’s /Charvel’s /fenders …I am a little scared to try and clear coat it I am not a good wood worker but we are gonna give it a try thank you for an amazing product and I will be ordering again I think the SG will be my next project ……fingers_fhillips 2020

    A great client of mine requested that I build his son a JEM style ax for his birthday. The kid is a signed artist and about to go back on tour less one ax due to it being stolen. Not giving me enough time to build it from scratch, a You-tuber friend told me to try a Solo kit. He built a Solo JazzM and shows it to be to a standard that I could deal with for this build, so I did.

    The order went through like lightening and got to me far quicker than I expected, but then there was an issue with the body, and the neck. I called Solo, got Dave who is their under paid (in my opinion) Customer Care Expert. I explained the body issue preventing me from moving forward on this time sensitive build, and Dave handled it all, immediately. Dave had a new body coming my way the next day, and it arrived like 2 days later. Unfortunately, we had some other issues, and Dave handled them just as quickly, and now we are moving forward again.

    The main issue, as not to scare anyone away or leave it to your sorted imaginations, there was a cracking issue in the body. Yes, with 99.9% of all solid body Gtrs that see limited use and never leave the house, I could have drilled & filled and been fairly confident it would not turn into a do-over. But, no way can I do that with a professional musicians touring gtr. They see WAY too many weather changes and clumsy roadies.

    Additionally, that crack could have occurred in transit due to weather changes between Solo, and my place.

    The moral of this sorted tale you ask? Or, maybe you didn’t but here it is anyway; Of all my years building and dealing with mfgrs and suppliers, EVEN when their product was defective, not once have I dealt with a company that was so quick to please the client. AND…….AT NO additional cost to the client! I’m sure Dave doesn’t make the final decisions on what to cover, and or, not cover, so, hat-tip to the Solo owner. Solo has the best customer service, bar none, and again, whatever Dave is being paid, it’s NOT enough!

    The entire world’s population would do well by taking an E-Course on how not to be a$$holes, from Dave. In fact, Dave may be the reason why the world believes that all Canadians are so nice! Hats-off to your parents as well, Dave! ;-)/

    So yes, I will be returning to Solo for such future builds.
    Thanks guys

    I tend to agree with the ‘first time builder’ comment issues. Mostly electrical issues. You can build this kit and play it but I would suggest that if you aren’t a professional-get a professional setup. I was very pleased with the packaging along with the careful storage of all hardware and contents. This guitar is now hanging on my wall and putting my long and mcquade bought guitars to absolute shame. Solo music has a great thing going and I would highly recommend someone doing this as a project. Even if you just want the stain it and leave the rest to someone else-it’s going to be a very satisfying feeling in the end. My two regrets are as followed;
    1 – if you do a two toned stain to try and expose the lower grain with dark and the upper grain with light, don’t mess with it after you’ve done your light coat. Be happy with your initial result.

    2 – I used a Matte finish instead of a gloss. I thought it would look better but everyone’s gloss results really compliment their builds.

    Cheers,

    Fantastic, everything fit great on the kit! it looks beautiful and sounds awesome! Easy to build with a basic knowledge of wiring (all I have is introduction to electrical from Grade 10 in 2005) and going on youtube to find woodworking techniques, you just need to be relatively handy. It was a fun project especially on quarantine. Don’t be discouraged if you live in a condo/ apartment I do and I just did my sanding in the bathtub and cleaned up properly afterwards just make sure you have somewhere airy to let any stains/ varnish dry. I used unicorn spit for stain since I wanted wood grain and couldn’t find the colors I wanted in traditional stain it worked out quite well in spite of the fact I didn’t read the instructions.

    TLDR – kit is great will buy again from solo.
