    The top of this guitar was really beautiful! The stock photo for it did it no justice. It had lots of flame to it. Some of the hardware needed to be adjusted or filed, but that only took a few minutes. I almost had to do no neck work (just made sure it was straight, and fixed some fret ends). I was also surprised by the tuners. I assumed they would be super cheap, but I think they will be suitable for a while. All in all it was super nice and good for my first set neck build.

    This was my first guitar kit ever. I have to say I was very pleased with the quality. The maple top is not a veneer. It is a very thick piece of maple with a beautiful grain pattern. The machining of the body and neck are quite precise. I had a couple of questions and Solo Tech Support were very prompt in answering even through their move. I wouldn’t have known unless they told me because I saw really no delay in their response.

    I used the Crystalac water based finish on it and it came out with a mirror finish. I discovered this from a YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=3&v=iFtsXkHCbgM He went through the step-by-step finishing process. After buffing it I used the finest polishing compound liquid I could find at Autozone. It worked great! I didn’t have a powerful enough compressor to spray on the finish, so I put on the 6 finish coats with a foam brush. It level sanded just fine before buffing.

    My Nephew who has been playing guitar for over 20 years came over and checked it out. The neck was close to perfect. The adjustments I made according to the instructions were almost spot on. I am now enjoying a hobby I gave up when I got married 43 years ago. Hopefully I don’t destroy my wife’s hearing or sanity.
