    Great deal. Bass wood body ,maple neck .Hot PUs. Neck pocket needed a little tidying up ,nut had to be reslotted. neck alingement right on.Personally chose to upgrade pots and input jack. Intonation right on.You gotta start off with good wood.Half of what it would cost from other suppliers and hardware to boot. I’m not one for fancy finishes so i was playing in 2 days.I’ve been playing and giging for 50 years.Played ’em all.This is a good deal.More than what I expected for my money.Don’t get me wrong it ain’t a $2000 guitar,but for the money,sweet.Take care.

    the quality of the guitar was good. nice neck of course you have to fine tune but the direction came whit the guitar is easy to understand. the only thing is the cavity for the 3 way selector is not the right deep i cant screw it in place whit the plastic ring and miss the six screw for headstock tuner if one of those day i buy another diy kit i take it from solomusic gear buy it december 2017 and receve it few days later

    Good solid kit for beginners. Neck was described to me as a bit “clubby”. I did not find it so, and am looking forward to finish and play. Pre-fit of parts showed close tolerances on laser cut outs. Was pleased with that, particularly on neck to body fit (will not require shims, etc.) Overall am expecting
    this kit guitar will make a great addition to my personal line up.

    Just great…. For hand skilled person of course. I need to do a little bit of adjustement for the neck to fit correctly and mine had a little too much angle for an LP, so just remove a little bit of wood to be as i want…. And really fast shipping, i receive it in 3 days…
    I will try another model soon, so i recommend it….

    Very happy with my Les Paul kit. Build went flawlessly following the instructions. If you’re looking to build a kit, you will be very happy with Solomusicgear.

    This was a ton of fun to build! Everything fit perfectly and I think the guitar sounds preyty good. The only thing I would change is that the pots came with some of the connections pre-soldered. I was looking forward to soldering all the connections myself but since this was my first build, my first electric guitar I’ve ever owned, and the first time I’ve really soldered electronic connections, I’m still really pleased and kind of grateful some of the work was done. I would definitely buy another kit from Solo. I just have to decide if the next one is a strat or tele.

    It was so much fun to build this kit, and trust me, it sounds awesome!
    The neck was perfectly straight, only some minor work needed to make the fret smooth
    Body holes were perfectly drilled, all good there.
    After lots of work with sand paper and painting, I put the kit together: neck-body was the perfect match! Man, this kit was well done!
    Electronics went in like a charm. Colours of the wires were different from the diagram available online, but I figure it out (after some time!)
    This was my best project so far, and I am truly enjoying playing it! Pay attention European users, I had to pay about 30 euros extra due to custom. It was worth it though!
    I would buy it again with no hesitation (and probably I will!!)
