    Great kit! Perfect for a first build. Solid quality and good components.
    With no experience, I was able to complete the build in just a few hours. Fantastic customer service and after sales support.

    I bought this kit for my son for Christmas. While I did do a few modifications, for $175 taxes in, I have to say I’m impressed.
    Finish: You can see a few minor flaws if you inspect it close, but have to say I’m pretty impressed with the finish. Saves a lot of time with the finishing steps! And the kit is cheaper. Used Tried and True finish on the neck but think I’m going to do it again for him with TruOil after seeing some other folks use it. Can find them both at Lee Valley by the way.
    Hardware: Everything seems fine so far. The bridge seemed fine, but I’ve had a Gotoh tele bridge with individual saddles around for ages, so I decided to install that. Unfortunately it was the string through the body type and the mounting screws were in a different location so I had to drill the body and install string ferrules. That was a bit nerve racking with the finish being on already, but a couple of trips to YouTube and some other sites and found a good method to do it. Also, I had some tortoise shell pickguard material so I made a new pickguard to replace the black one. Looks great!
    Playability: Truss rod, bridge and the nut will need to be adjusted (default action is pretty high), so if you don’t have the tools for that you will have to find or pay someone to do the setup for you. After I did the setup it plays great!
    Electronics: Had a minor issue with the neck pickup (went dead), but resolved it after troubleshooting. I think the connection at the pickup was grounding out, or maybe just loose. Just had to adjust the wire a little bit and everything is fine now. Guitar sounds good! My son is happy!
    Debating which kit to get for myself now….

    just received this kit today. it is my second solo kit, my first one being a strat. I am impressed. neck was a perfect fit. the frets were really good. I was surprised that the bridge is as heavy as it is. nice. I had a string through ashtray bridge coming already but I don’t need it. maybe i’ll put it on but maybe not. finish is really nice. tuners are great being the same as the ones that came with my strat. I’ve had that about a year and no problems. stable as can be. all in all a nice little git. and I don’t mean for the money. I mean its a nice little git period. my collection is slowly being replaced with solo’s. expensive doesn’t mean much anymore.
