    Haven’t begun assembly just yet, but here are some pre-build observations. Kit seems to be essentially as advertised with a few minor flaws.

    1. At least 6 high frets along the neck which warrants a full fret level. (At least one is very high) Since the frets seem to have been sprayed with sealer along with the rest of the body, there’s some sanding involved anyway. Also some have not been crowned so well.

    2. The fret markers on the board itself are out of alignment at three or four different positions, ranging from slight to “way off”. They appear to be just ink so I’m hoping to be able to remove them entirely?

    3. I understand the function of the poly sealer but it has been allowed to pool more thickly in spots, and I’m anticipating some difficulty in removing it all effectively.

    Some positive notes:
    -routing seems flawless.
    -neck fit is good and snug
    -bridge is nice and thick and should not need replacing for sake of quality.

    Some neutral observations:
    -electronics are what you’d expect for the price but pots and switches are easily upgraded with little expense.
    -existing solder joints seem good
    -tuners again are what you might expect and will be good enough to get things up and running.

    Overall i think this kit is absolutely worth the cost and should be an interesting project. HOWEVER… i would like to see more care taken with the neck specifically as it represents the most work to correct.

    Expect to spend a little more in addition to the cost of the kit for tools to correct the issues. I give it four stars because it’s still a good price and likely to be better than most other inexpensive kits. It will be some work.

    Still going to be a lot of fun… i hope.
