    This came out beautifully, looking very authentic. Assembly was pretty straightforward, and the painting went well (though one cannot hope to match a factory finish). I had some problems with the electronics. A technically experienced friend looked over what I had done, and told me that the enclosed wiring diagram was wrong; he did it his way, and it works. I would encourage Solo to check out whether the wiring diagram is correct.

    After adjusting the truss rod, nut, bridge and a few other things, it plays really nicely. Overall it was fun to build, and it is really good value.

      Thanks for pointing out your issues to us regarding wiring up your DIY guitar, your feedback is important to us.
      Glad to hear you got it sorted out.
      We are currently working to improve our wiring schematics and we will have v2 of our wiring diagrams available soon.
      We hope to hear from you again in the future.

    This build was fun!!! The build instructions were easy to follow, including the wiring diagram. It sounds and plays great! I love this guitar! Thank you for making such a great kit. I would definitely recommend this kit for anyone looking for a great quality, great playing, and great sounding guitar!

    I completed my second Solo kit this morning. I am impressed with the final result. The neck and the fret job were perfect and it plays great. Thanks Matt for his help as the diagram for the wiring was not exact. I only wish I could go back in time and buy the kits when I was younger LOL.

    I started building DIY Guitar Kits for the passed three years as part of my retirement. Started with a Amoon Jass Bass from TomTop, a Les Paul Kit from Bargain Musician, a Strat Kit from E-Bay and this SG from Solo. The only reason I tried Solo was Brad Angove’s YouTube. Im hooked, Solo kits are the next leave of craftsmanship. Neck, fretwork, electronics are all very good. My first three kits required me to learn Luthier trade to get them to work. Solo kits are so well engineered, even a beginner like me can have fun doing these kits. Im looking forward to doing a 12 string, a double-neck and many more kits from Solo. I now have people asking for me to build them kits. Thank you Canada!

    This is my first guitar kit and I have yet to finish the assembly. The neck to body fit was very tight and the alignment checked out. I did have to level the frets a bit. One fret at about the 13th position was low and subsequently the adjacent frets had to be sanded down a bit more than I’d like. I will not know if there is a problem until I get the guitar finished and playing. If there is I’ll simply re-fret the entire fret-board. Right now I’ve completed the staining and grain filling steps and am at the final finishing stage. I’m following a hand rubbed linseed/poly process laid out by Highline Guitars, you can look for them on YouTube – it is a great channel for information on building guitars. I’ll update this once I have the project completed. My next project will be a semi-hollow 335 style guitar.

    This is a high-quality kit. The mahogany body and neck were well constructed and well fit. The frets and fretboard were nice out of the box, but the neck and nut needed considerable adjustment – which is half the fun of setting up your own guitar anyway. The tuners are nice, the pickguard and backplate decent. I did not install the humbuckers although they have some weight and seem ok. I replaced them with 4-wire humbuckers so I could install coil-tapping, which I accomplished with two push-pull pots replacing the Solo tone pots.

    Go get one of these. You will not be sorry.

    I am going to get one the the LP kits next.
