Don't know if I got lucky but the wood on my kit was stunning, finished with tru oil which came out nicely. Sound wise I'm really impressed
got home this kit and find that the body and the neck looks really good.
the bindings are well glued and the fit between the neck and body are good, are very satisfied
When my kit arrived, I saw the body had a crack right underneath the pickups cavities. After I sent a picture to KitBuiltGuitars they replied within a few hours and told me that they had sent a new one. Great service!
Build was great, with a single remark: I found that the 8 coil springs (presumed to be for mounting the pickups) were way too long. Compressing them around the end of the screw (which goes through the pickup) leaves almost no thread for fixing the screw. I found that cutting them in half made it possible to install the pickups and still have some spring action to set them up later.
Other than that, really happy with my wood finish. 4 layers of danish oil gave the body a warm hue and accentuated the grain. The wood wax (carnabau and bees wax mix) rubbed on and buffed lightly gave exactly the smooth and satin gloss finish I was looking for.
The neck turned out super slick, gave it 1 layer of danish oil and a good buff with wood wax. I gave the headstock a custom made logo with waterslide decal paper (8 micrometers) and buried it in satin gloss lacquer from a spray can.
Got this as a gift. This is a great way to learn how your bass works, how to woodwork, paint and solder. Everything easy to figure out as long as you take your time!
