    Kit arrived quickly, and was packaged extremely well. Fretwork was great, not sharp ends, and only a couple of frets that were not level. Great feel, beautiful body, and the p-90s sound EXCELLENT. The body isn’t quite a JM, so I don’t know how a replacement pick guard would look, but I like the one included.

    However, there were a few issues with the kit: almost all of the tuning machines have issues with the chrome plating, and one of them was damaged to the point it was nearly impossible to get it secured in the headstock (but I was impatient and forced it in… I guess I’ll cross that bridge if I upgrade them…) One of the screws for the pickups was flat, so I had to use another screw to drill the hole into the body. Also on the pups, the springs aren’t very stiff, or very tall, so my bridge pickup can’t get as high as I’d like, and it moves a ton, causing noise.

    The last issue is that, while the neck pocket fit was excellent, the neck angle was too shallow, so I need to get a shim to set it up properly. Overall, with a bit of work, and some parts, this guitar comes out quite nicely, definitely on par or better than the best Squiers you’ll find.
