    This is my second Solo kit. The first was the Spalted Maple TC kit. I am a hobbyist player/builder, and this kit was finished, assembled, and setup in my garage. I used simple tools that would be found in anyone’s home tool box. As with the first kit, this one arrived within 4 days of my order placement. Upon receipt I unboxed and assembled it to test fitment. Compared with Spalted kit the neck to body fit was much better with this kit, as was the cavity routing. The neck to bridge alignment was very good. In general everything went together well. The ash burl veneer was truly beautiful. If it wasn’t book matched you would have to work hard to convince me. The neck was very good and required only a minor tweak of the truss rod. I did find the fret ends to be a little sharp and I a couple that were a bit high. A little bit of dressing took care of those issues. My only complaint was the tool marks on the perimeter of the body. They required more sanding than I experienced with the Spalted kit.

    Of course finishing is about individual tastes. Basswood is pretty boring in my opinion, so I finished the back and sides in a hammered copper paint (rattle can). With wood as beautiful as the ash burl I decided to let it speak for itself and used wipe on polyurethane. In combination with black binding, I’m very happy with my choice of finishes.

    I setup the guitar with a medium low action and D Addario 9’s. Intonation is tough to dial in. Compensated saddles would be and inexpensive and good upgrade. It sounds good both clean and with some dirt dialed in. The pickups have a clear bell like chime when clean and will growl when you add some distortion. My grandkids are going to love this guitar. Git ya one!

    This purchase has been a great experience. The product was delivered quickly. There were no missing parts. The neck was a bit wide but, thanks to customer support, I was able to sand down the block for a nice tight fit. The body and neck have been sanded and made ready for the rest of the finishing. The grain is popping out nicely. There are a number of really helpful How-To videos on You Tube. The ones by a Brad Angove I found especially helpful. I am looking forward to finishing this project and starting another one of the products that SOLO offers. Great work, guys.
