    I just finished my kit. The quilted maple makes all the difference…with dye, the contrast is amazing and you can get a style like some much more expensive guitars. One friend said it looked like a PRS; I take that as a compliment. 🙂

    I did upgrade the tuners and pickups. Would love to see an option to have those as part of the kits, but the components are good in the current.

    Overall, it turned out great. I will do one again from solo for sure!

    This was my 2nd DIY Guitar build and my 1st from SoloMusicGear. I wanted to try a set neck and a quilted maple top so I picked this PRK-10 kit. Based on Brad Angove’s YT videos the kits from Solo seemed of good quality so I gave it a shot. For the most part I was pretty happy with the kit and customer service addressing a couple of kit issues I had with the pickups that were sent and positioning the neck to match the scale length. The only caution I would say about these veneer maple tops is that they are very very thin so be careful sanding on the edges.

    Other than that it came out pretty good after getting it setup. I had to level a few frets and may have to replace the nut since I may have filed the lowE a bit too far to get the first fret to tune to an F but now buzzes slightly since the truss rod was already as loose as I’d like. Also just throw the strings that come with it out since they don’t tension the neck well to do setup well.

    I will definitely get another kit from SMG in the future but may stick with a bolt on neck kit instead.

    This was my 8th guitar kit (Strats, Teles, LPs, etc.) But my first PRS and this is my nicest guitar yet. Used a yellow dye from StewMac for the color, with StewMac nitrocellulous lacquer over that – came out gorgeous – I would definitely make another!

    This was my first guitar kit and I couldn’t be happier. The veneer was thin but beautiful. The neck fit the pocket perfectly and didn’t need any modifications. I was expecting to have to do fret work on the neck but it didn’t need it. Even the ends of the frets weren’t sharp like some cheap guitars. I didn’t use any of the hardware or pickups so I can’t say anything other than it was cheap stuff and I wish I could have upgraded it. But this has become one of my favorite guitars. It plays beautifully and sounds great too.

    My only complaint and it wasn’t a big deal, was where the veneer was book matched. The glue came through right down the center and didn’t take dye. So I had a line running down the middle with no color. Not a big deal just got creative and painted a racing stripe down it and I like even better than if it took the dye.

    I recommend this kit highly.

    I am very impressed with the quality of this kit overall and the price they sell it at. I did upgrade the pickups/electronics and the tuners, but even with the stock equipment, it’s a great deal.

    It was also a lot of fun to build and was not difficult at all. I’m already planning my next kit and giving the wife subtle hints. Lol.
