    i thought it would be fun to try a build. ive never played electric guitar, only acoustics. My expectations were,i think, realistic in a kit for this price. It shipped and delivered very fast. The overall quality of the wood grain, fit,finish of parts,chrome,the parts being protected by film,etc. are impressive and i have to say exceeded my expectations. even included is a length of solder ! The instructions are o.k. but i had to research and ask about a couple things that arent clear in the instructions like pos. vs. ground on the jack and some details of the set – up but i got responses to my e mails to solo and spent some time on line.I took a weekend to sand the body and neck and finish the neck. The week was spent painting the body (red) and then today i assembled and set -up. Ive played it a bit and continue to learn about the set-up and i have to say its pretty cool to build. I love it in flag red with semi-gloss. Take your time with the finish – mine turned out better than i anticipated !

    Great kit! I purchased this DIY guitar package with “0” experience building or setting up guitars. With the body predrilled, the neck in phenomenal shape out of the box and pre-wired pickups, this is great for all levels of experience.

    As a bonus, Solo is a great company, I was surprised and extremely happy with the timely shipping. The customer service was also amazing, as I had an issue with a piece of hardware and they responded and corrected immediately. (Not sure if the issue was my fault or not)

    I am not a luthier; I am just a regular guy who loves playing guitar. This product is fantastic. I pretty much built my own guitar with ZERO experience. Every guitarist needs this product! Every guitarist needs to experience building their guitar. I can only say great things about the product because it is simply the truth.

    Kit was really easy to build. I had to shim the neck pocket which was a little disappointing since Solo has a reputation for tight fitting pockets, but it was easy to do. (Not sure what I’m going to do with all the extra veneer I have now though. Lol)

    I leveled the frets and got the action down to 3/64 so it plays really nice.

    I bought the black hardware pack, so I upgraded the nut with a Tusq XL since I was taking the old one off. Haven’t had any tuning issues. Other than the stock tuners aren’t that smooth so getting the guitar tuned to begin with is a challenge. I’m keeping my eye out for better tuners.

    I found the pickups too shrill for my tastes, even for strat pickups, so those are also on the list for future upgrade.

    All that said, I gave it 5 stars cause it met my expectations for the price point.
