  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Very happy with the quality of this kit. It’s way way better than the stuff you find on eBay. The body was almost perfect and I only filled a couple of super tiny spots. I kept the wood grain as is, just spray painted and applied a clear coat. The one thing that surprised me was the weight, this is not a light bass.

    The only adjustments that my kit required were:
    1-Filing a few frets.
    2-Filing the plastic back cover just a bit because it was too tight.
    3-Drilling larger string holes at the head so that 45-105 strings would fit.

    This is my first headless bass and I found out that changing strings on such an instrument is more challenging than a standard one. None the less, it super cool looking 🙂

    Definitely one of the better kits out there, easy for someone who doesn’t do a lot of woodworking/guitar building to create something decent out of this.

    That being said, I understand that these are designed to be affordable… I had to make the same 3 adjustments that the reviewer above made (Guy B.) and I also replaced most of the screws included because the heads wanted to strip even when taking great care and using a perfectly sized driver head. On the locking nut for the E and A I had to partially drive an oversized drill bit into the top of the screw hole so the locking screw head sits lower and can catch the threads and actually lock (a .105 E string was a little too tall in the locking mechanism) .

    The neck pocket was nice and snug. Everything lined up well. I am by no means an expert, but I have played for 25+ years so do I know my way around guitars and basses a little… I was able to get it set up in good playing condition with no outside help.

    Also, I upgraded the pickups with Aguilar Super Doubles, so I can’t say anything about the stock pickups. Once assembled I ran it through the big rig (Hartke full stack) and I can get a really nice growl out of it. I used copper shielding in the cavity and I am getting zero noise.

    Overall, I worry a little about the durability of the locking hardware but I really enjoyed putting it together and I am going to give the Flying V-bass kit a shot next.
