Rounded edge of neck pocket - Rough binding on neck - Neck not matched very well with body - Large gap on seam of body veneer - Small crack on fretboard - Glue on inlay.
This is a beautiful kit made of real SOLID mahogany- no basswood or particle board for us- Real solid mahogany with a really nice old school look AND sound!Bridge and Tailpiece holes are pre-drilled for easier installation.The neck is a SET NECK- that means you have to use your chisels and sandpaper to get a good fit on the offset style tenon joint, then use Hide or Carpenters glue to build this guitar. It's not rocket science, but patience and research will help you produce a superior guitar. The offset tenon is very easy even for a first-timer to get a nice tight fit.We give you the entire package- unfinished body and neck- fretted with nut installed, ALL the hardware right down to the last screw- Now...the hardware is "basic"... certainly good enough to get you going- but you might want to consider upgrading some stuff if your finish job turns out good- All of our better quality parts we sell separately will fit.The body is bound- and that super quality top is ready for some aniline dye or stain. the neck is bound with rosewood fingerboard and trapezoid inlays.A Super way to get introduced to the art and craft of building your own guitar.These are factory fresh and first quality- NO SEALER is applied- These are raw wood so you can choose to apply a vintage Lacquer finish if you choose. Take your time- do some homework, get the right glues and finishing materials and you can craft a very, very nice playing instrument.We include all the basics- and of course we strongly encourage you to think about upgrading pickups and parts with our reasonably priced line of stuff available right here on this very website!
