The goodness outshines the minor flaws

SamD, 17.12.2015
It's hard to review this kit because as a finished guitar it has some flaws: notably the body is too light and the guitar headstock pulls towards the ground on a strap. This can ruin the feel of a guitar and it's such a dopey thing to lose out on. Also, the pickup selector switch is ridiculously stiff - a point that others have noted in their reviews. And that's all the bad points summed up in one go.

I set up guitars for my business and I bought this kit to see just how good it is given the amount of great feedback it gets. I also wanted to see just how good a guitar this could be with the addition of a really good set up (including precision fret-levelling) and some quality pickups.

The good points start from the moment you order the kit. First off, the price. It's cheap for a decent-sounding electric guitar but it's ridiculously cheap for a great learning experience in a box for your son, daughter, husband, wife friend etc that also ends up with a playable guitar.

Next the box when it arrives. Neat, well organised, everything in compartments.

Then the discovery that the kit has printed instructions!?! That's a first! And the good stuff keeps coming - namely:

? Clean, well-cut body
? Excellent neck with remarkably few uneven frets and no sharp edges. Pretty rosewood
? Everything there, nothing missing
? Snap together connectors so no soldering needed
? All holes where they should be
? Perfect neck body fit

The guitar is a doddle to put together and the whole thing could be done in under an hour easily. In my case, I cut a Fender-style headstock, put on my own brand logo and lacquered the neck with some vintage amber. I put some waterbased ink stain on the body and finished it off with Tru-oil. Very very easy. However, I found that the basswood not only doesn't take the stain very well it also doesn't seem to have a very pronounced grain, making the end result look like a slightly flat and dull colour but to be honest, I didn't expect much more for the price.

I also installed Tone Rider pickups before putting the guitar together which did require a tiny bit of soldering as I added the HB 'snap together' connectors to the Tone Riders. Because of that, I didn't test out the stock pickups but I've no reason to doubt they're perfectly acceptable, given everyone else's comments.

Joining neck and body together is extremely easy. I performed a precision fret levelling and full set up on this guitar to get the best possible action from it but before I did, I tried it out in 'out of the box' configuration i.e. after only adjusting the bridge saddle heights - which anyone can do. The result was impressive - a very playable guitar with a pretty good action.

I didn't need to use the instructions but I did read them and they ARE very well-written with some really concise general set up advice - another real plus, Thomann.

Once together, does the guitar work for me? No - because the neck-heaviness is something I can't personally live with. Is it a superb package for anyone wanting to get into guitar building or to have a playable guitar for very little money - hell, yes.

There's no doubt about it, building a guitar from a kit leaves you feeling very attached to it which is great. Because of that, this guitar would have definitely been a 'keeper' for me - if only it wasn't head-heavy. If Thomann could get the manufacturer to measure the balance and add the necessary weight at the body end (even if cost a couple of quid more) it would make such a difference.

So sadly I'm left with a guitar I probably won't play unless I can find a way to add some lead shot to the body to cure the neck dive. As I didn't need the experience of putting the kit together it's real value was to learn that it's not something I'm going to do again.

Having said that, I still give it 5* because for a young person or a newcomer to the guitar it's a superb learning experience - one that's worth far more than the £57 price tag.

A great Guitar for home recording.

04.04.2017
I play mainly acoustic guitar these days "Gibson Hummingbird" and thought as I record a lot I might get an electric guitar to do some lead accompaniments. I always fancied a Telecaster but not wanting to spend that kind of money I decided to go for a kit. I did not expect much but as I was going to record directly into my computer based recording software I thought it would do the job. I varnished the body, polished the frets " which is advisable " use very fine wet or dry paper or steel wool, shaped the head to my liking then assembled it all. I used the strings supplied to tension the neck to allow me to adjust the bridge and truss rod which was very easy to do. I will change the strings after leaving the neck to settle and adjust if needed. The bridge, finger plate, knobs and machine heads are far better weight and quality than I expected. The neck also feels very good. Time to plug in and try, I am absolutely delighted with the sound from the pickups. I do not have an amplifier so can not vouch for the sound through one, but through my computer software it sounds like a very high quality guitar. All that said I would highly recommend this kit to anyone, When my musician friends saw and heard the guitar they thought I had got myself a Fender Telecaster and would not believe it was a kit I made up. For this price I would go for it, I may just get another one.
