A good base for upgrades

18.09.2016
A good kit to approch the art of guitar/bass building.
The wood of the body has a weird grain so a natural finish is not the best option, I finish mine in fiesta red nitro and the result is stunning. Body needs to be carefully sanded on some spots that are rough to grant a good final result.
The neck is quite good, I did a level-recrown-polish job to the frets as I did with all the low cost instruments, fretboard with a good soak of wood oil (I use the red one but there's plenty of choices) reveals a beautyful dark tone.
I can't judge the stock PU because I changed it with a pair of Di Marzio's DP123, electronic is the standard chinese stuff you find in low cost intruments, it works, for sure can be upgraded with quality part for a few bucks if you want.
Assembly is easy, the coupling neck-body is tight.
With a quick set up the finished bass is a good, playable instrument, soundwise my rating is influenced by the fact that I installed PUs that costs more than the kit but even with the standard ones you'll have a light bass with a confortable neck with no dead spots that you can think to upgrades later

Great project bass

Ash K., 24.12.2014
Got this as a fun project after seeing a friend have a try and was very impressed. For the money I was quite surprised at the quality of manufacturing although there were some little issues such as the pickups not quite fitting into their housings and being a screw or two short for fixing the scratch plate in place. However, these obstacles made the project a bit more fun to do and it didn't put me off getting another.

The sound quality isn't great but is perfectly acceptable given the cost, and the fact that most people will be seeing these basses as an opportunity to experiment with gives scope to having a bit more customising fun without the fear of spoiling a top quality instrument.

I've now tried the telecaster, my 14 year old son has made a decent job of a strat, and I'll be using these as a bass for a guitar club at my school. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
