    I built the SRBK-15 5 string bass for my son who is a fantastic bass player. It turned out great and the intonation and action are perfect! It plays wonderfully. It is a great bass kit at a very reasonable price!

    so far so good still working on it, the sealer sanded off ok, the tuner hole for the g string was off towards the center other than that it’s coming out really nice, be thumping in no time. I will be trying the quilted PRS style kit next. thank you.

    For the most part, a good kit. The neck and body were shaped and routed well, the wood was good, and all the parts were there and of reasonable quality.

    I had to sand flat the area where the bridge sits, otherwise the curve of the body would keep it from attaching securely. It ended up securely mounted but sloped back slightly, so moving a saddle back requires raising it as well to keep the action correct.
    I also had to carve a flat rim around the holes for the pots near the outer edge, again because of the curve of the body (the nuts wouldn’t fit flat to the body otherwise).
    I used Ernie Ball regulars (45-130) instead of the included strings, and found that I had to enlarge the hole on the bridge for the 5th string and widen the nut slots to fit them.
    The frets also needed levelling, and the action at the nut was *way* too high, but after dealing with those issues the neck is great.
    Although there were a few things to fix, it was all manageable and it turned out great at the end. It was much better than the last kit I built (which was purchased elsewhere).
