    Just received the guitar. I got it in no time at all. A couple of working days. I am very impressed with this free delivery service! The guitar oarts look really good and seem to be of high quality. Snug fit between the neck and the body. That is pretty much all I can say at this point. I intend to provide more comments when it is built. From what I can tell so far, I believe this inexpensive “project” guitar will exceed my expectations. Another thing I would like to mention is that Matt from Solo has been very helpful and quick to respond to all my emails. Customer service is excellent! That’s it for now.

    Well this was purchased as a gift from my wife, so I will not be assembling it for a few months, but the customer service and delivery was unbelievable. They kept me in the loop when they received the product, and I received it the day after I ordered it. Everything looks good, and I’m looking forward to assembly it, it’s going to be a beautiful ax to play.

    My guitar is not built yet but all looks good so far: sanding is coming along nicely. Wood seems to be of good quality as does all the hardware. Customer service is top notch, Matt replies to questions same day. I will send a photo when the project is complete.

    Building a guitar has been on my radar for sometime. Some woodworking knowledge and tools are required, however, the Solo guitar kit made this build a reality for me by eliminating the need for extensive knowledge or expensive equipment and tools in order to complete. There were minor adjustments required, however, the neck and body fit was excellent as well as all of the hardware and controls were included and fit properly. Originally it was my intention to upgrade some of the hardware and pickups, but upon completion it became apparent that this wasn’t necessary as everything works and sounds great. The neck fret work was level and only required minor polishing. Matt at Solo was very helpful and fast to respond to any questions or concerns I had. The result was a really nice guitar that plays and sings at a fraction of the price that one will pay for a completed brand name instrument. It also allowed me to gain the knowledge and confidence to order and build another one.

    I purchased a new kit last year and it is the best thing I could have done. I had a great experience building it. I am now waiting for a warlock or higher end jazz to come available. Thanks Solo

    So far so good. The delivery was quick. I sent an email to thank solo for the quick service and got a quick reply which tells me these guys care. I haven’t finished building it yet but everything looks okay and I’m looking forward to playing the finished product. I’ve been mentioning Solo gear to everyone I can mention you guys to. Thank you for being here in Canada. I really this company is doing well and continues providing these products. I’m really, really happy and excited with my purchase. When I’m finished this one I’ll probably get another one. It’s been a fun project so far. Cheers Solo gear and thank you guys.

    This thing is more than what it looks that’s for sure, despite the single coils the tone matches my Gibson without a single flaw.

    These kits are more surprising than anything I’ve played. Makes you wonder why everything else is so pricey

    The kit was easy to assemble. I had my buddy do up the wiring though. The pickups are dead quiet and are actually pretty decent. The sound is rather airy probably due to the semi-hollow aspect I suppose. The neck pocket fit was ok, not perfect but within acceptable parameters. I’ve seen American tele’s with worse neck pocket gaps than this one. But the biggest feature of this guitar and site was the price. I checked around quite a bit and this was definitely a huge factor for me. I will definitely pick up another guitar from this company down the road.

    I was able to build a really nice playing guitar out of this kit. It was my first build and was excellent for self-educating myself from finishing all the way through to final assembly. I was absolutely shocked at how good this guitar sounded the first time I plugged it in. I did use a different bridge and modified the body for through body strings but used 100% of the included electronics. The neck was levelled but fretts needed polishing which was just all part of the valuable education. Maybe I will build a Bass next. I would recommend Solo as your source if you want to do it yourself.
