    DO NOT BUY UNLESS YOU ARE AN EXPERT BUILDER. The product itself was beautiful, with good parts and well constructed. The instructions were beyond horrible. There wasn’t a single picture, diagram or image to help you with the construction. Unless you already know which screws go with which parts, and which parts should be placed where and in what direction you will struggle. The instructions did include one wiring diagram, however that diagram did not correspond with wires that were in the kit and the pre-soldering that was already done. Solo’s online videos were no help. I finally had to hunt you-tube for solutions and asked friends for assistance. None of it would have been overly difficult if clear instructions were included.

    Good kit, with some issues.

    Before I get into anything it’s important to note how thin the maple veneer is on this kit. You really need to take that into account before you start finishing because it doesn’t make much sanding before you start seeing a bit of mahogany bleeding through.

    The holes for the pots, bridge, saddle, selector, machine heads etc. Were all drilled well and were in the position that they should be.

    The neck routing is where I had issues. The neck pocket was positioned slightly too far to the treble side so it didn’t quite sit flush with the body, also while the pocket had been shimmed it was shimmed well and the neck didn’t sit quite flat in the body.

    All in all these ended up being small issues an probably speaks to tolerances in the manufacturing process.

    The kit was easy to put together and I had a great deal of fun. Especially wiring up the pick ups.

    This is my second solo kit, and when that TB style bass kit is in stock I’ll be sure to pick that up.
