    Over all, the product quality was as expected for this price point, however I did have to reshape the headstock to
    replicate a Fender Strat. headstock. Fortunately I had the equipment to accomplish this. Many people might not.

    I had no issue with this product. I took my time with the build and was completely satisfied with the appearance, and performance.
    I have since made several modifications and they were easy and everything fit well and again no issues and I was able to upgrade
    the guitar with ease.

    I received the product amazingly quick … I have found that the router work to be excellent and the quality of the overall wood cuts to be excellent. The neck/fretboard I found to have an excellent feel not to thick and I was able to sand it to such a nice smooth feel get some great speed and movement along the neck. I found the frets to be smooth and not sharp or rough. Only time will tell if there will any shrinking in the neck cause edges on the frets. As for the hardware hat comes with it I have only used the bridge plate changing the saddles and the jack boat. I upgraded all other hardware. The hardware that comes with the kit .. Appear to be comparable with a Squier Standard Strat… I have researched a lot of diy kits and found Solo Gear to be the best quality for the money. Just overall I enjoyed building the kits.

    Got this in the mail and had a great time building it. Great guitar for the price and I learned a lot about doing a proper setup. Sounds decent out of the box! Neck fit into the body really nice. Neck profile is a bit thick, but could be easily thinned down. Quality kit at a great price!

    This is Project no 2… it took 2 days to do it. First day was to paint the body and next day to assemble the parts and electronics. I had to shim the neck a bit to have a low action. I thought I had to upgrade the pickups but wow! They sound amazing. The only upgrade I’ll do is to change the nut probably graphtech xl. My next project….a les paul style! Enjoy!

    My intention for this build was to replicate the famous Hendrix Woodstock Strat. One of the most iconic instruments in rock history.
    I was more than delighted to find a Maple capped, maple neck, without the truss rod “skunk stripe” on the back, just like Jimi’s 1968 CBS Fender.
    I set it up with a “floating” tremolo bridge and it stays remarkably in tune when using vibrato effects. The quality of the tuneomatic bridge made setting intonation and action a breeze. The nut required some modification to get the action where I wanted it and with a minimum of fret dressing the neck now feels and plays great.
    The pick-ups and five way switch, give me all the classic strat sound combinations. I shielded the cavities with copper foil keeping the electronics nearly” noiseless.”
    Thank you for offering an incredibly affordable quality guitar with all the features of a guitar costing many, many times more.

    So good I bought 2 of them! Easy to assemble and feel awesome to play. I changed out the electronics for fatter, hotter pickups but the stock single coils sounded really bright and crisp. I wanna build some more of these!
