A nice SG style kit for the enthusiast looking for a budget build
tōgerunner , 03.12.2018
Overall, this guitar was made of (barely) acceptable parts. The hardware is decent, strings are good, neck was crafted and finished very well.
The only negative point (and worst) of this kit is the quality of the body which was very poor, because basswood is a very soft and light material and not suitable for this kind of build (swapped out tuners for high quality ones, resulted in heavy neck dive)
The over-softness of this wood makes the body prone to heavy damage even from light dings.

If the neck is leveled and frets are re-crowned and polished, it makes for a serious contender to upper range guitars.
The rest of the parts are well within the ratio of price and quality.
1/10 for the body.

Better than expected, fun to build, great value
Ribson, 31.05.2020
I am a home player and enjoy learning and playing different styles. I've had a few electrics over the years, currently own a couple of decent mid-range guitars. I bought this kit as I wanted something different and to put my own mark on it - it was also a 'lockdown' project to keep me busy!

Arrived very well packaged. I immediately ignored all instructions and focussed on working on the body. My objective was a natural type finish, not too glossy, so I went with Tru-oil. Youtube vids were helpful, it took a lot of sanding over many days and I am really pleased with how it looks. The body is obviously constructed out of pieces, so it was never going to look totally amazing, but I am very happy with it and the graining does look nice. Tru-oil does not darken the wood a great deal, so with hindsight I might have lightly stained it too before Tru-oiling, maybe I'll do that on my next guitar.

The neck is really good straight out of the box. I was very impressed - unlike the body it is already nicely finished and silky smooth. I did paint the headstock black and lacquer it, which makes it look much nicer. I also gave the frets some attention, levelling and polishing. I always fret polish new guitars, makes them feel smoother for string bending. I also adjusted the truss rod, which was a little out. The nut looked like it might be an issue, the slots were wide and not cut very deep, but after assembly it doesn't seem to cause any problems.

It took me a couple of weeks to prep the body and neck. It was then that I picked up the manual...

Assembling the guitar took two or three hours. The neck fitted the body absolutely perfectly, no need to adjust. As others have noted, the instructions on fitting the pots are terrible, impossible to make out from the photo which way around they go, I was lucky to get it mostly right first time but the pickup selector switch I put in upside down but easy to correct. When I got to fitting the pickups it all became clearer which way the pots should go - maybe I should have read forward in the instructions first.
It was not clear which screws to use for which purpose - some were longer than others - although not a major problem I ended up with long screws for the truss rod cover and I actually think they were the wrong ones so I'm just going to find some spare small ones and use those.
Once stringed up it all looked really good. Everything lined up well, I adjusted the action and as soon as I played without going through an amp I was really impressed - it sounded really nice and resonant. It actually felt like a good guitar, which was a huge relief! I then plugged it in to my amp and again I was really impressed with how nice it sounded without much adjustment - I haven't yet fine tuned the setup such as intonation and pickup height and I'm not even sure I need to.

In summary, I really enjoyed this project and am delighted with the results. There were no significant issues at all with the kit I received, everything fitted well and worked. I definitely recommend these kits - for the money they really are excellent and overall exceeded my expectations. For that reason I have given it a 5 star review.

I did have an Epiphone SG a few years ago - to be honest I prefer the HB kit. I might even upgrade some of the components over time.

Pros:
Really fun and rewarding project
Great value
Everything fitted well and worked straight off

Cons:
Tuners do the job but some very stiff
Instructions for fitting potentiometers are vague
This might be a new addiction, I immediately want to buy more kits!!

fantastic basis for modding
eoinc, 03.09.2020
what you get for the incredibly low price:
- beautiful well finished neck, which can almost be used out of the box without filing etc. Nut you may want to replace
- well machined body, which seems to be made out of a higher grade alternative/variety to/of basswood (stronger and darker colored). One or two drilling holes slightly off true, but nothing critical. Sufficiently well matched 2 piece body which is even grained enough to take a stain or a clear coat. An insane amount of sanding sealer means that this is already practically finished and ready for painting should you desire.

Now - should you be able to source these parts elsewhere you will I'm sure pay more than the overall purchase price here. (google search 'bolt on maple gibson neck' for example)

Hardware is passable, but you will probably want to replace the bridge and tuners (losing a star here as bridge is slightly smaller than standard width, so minor modifications required to fit new one, also doesn't match neck radius particularly well). Electronics and pickups are only ok - about standard for entry level guitars (pickups are better than the pots etc) Switch is nice quality, and the pickguard is a nice well finished 3 ply piece.

So in the final analysis - if this is your first stab at guitar building you have something you can enjoy with minor tweaking out of the box, and gradually learn the dark arts of guitar wiring and set up.

If you're a more advanced builder, you have a great platform for mods and tinkering (4 pot control panel etc).

and no, its not a true SG - but can make a great sounding piece all the same..

well done thomann - if my partner wouldn't divorce me, Id be tempted to try another one of your kits

Cool as it comes, great with some upgrade!
S. Tom, 09.04.2021
I really wanted to have an “SG shape” guitar but not a huge budget. I owned a very cool Viper back in the days, but neck dive made it unplayable with my sore back. I also wanted to try building a kit and Thomann has this kit for an incredible price. At first I was a little suspicious about the quality of components and the ease of building but I decided to give it a try anyways just for the fun of building it. My fear was to end up with a neck diving/hard to set up/cheap sounding piece of wood. But i was wrong! Because this thing really rocks.
I bought it with the idea of doing some upgrade from the very beginning so i ordered it together with a set of Kluson tuners and planning to mount in it some spare parts (nut, DMT pickups and tom bridge) i had from a mid-high range Dean guitar.

Once i got the package i made a quick mount of main parts just to see if all was matching right and all looked right. I also had a good feeling in handling the Rengas body and the neck. The neck is finished in a very pleasant way, very smooth and fast. I can really leave it as it is but despite so i decided to paint it.

Since i had no space for a nitro spray paint I decided to go for a “Petrol Blue” semi transparent stain job on the body even though the Rengas body i got didn’t have any interesting wood grain.
For the neck i went for a trans black stain and tung oil as well.
Body and neck requires a good and intense sanding if you want to stain.

Despite some mistake i did in sanding, staining and clear coating process the guitar was really easy to mount and a lot of fun to do it. All parts and drills matched well, no need of re-drilling. The only holes that didn’t match well were the the ones for the neck pickup ring, but i fixed the matter filing down one side of the pick up ring a little instead of re-drilling the body. I also had to file one little side of the pickguard because it didn’t fit between the pickups.I think that for a diy kit those are really minor interventions!


I could mount Kluson tuners and my spare nut very easily. Since i was lazy in soldering i decided to connect my spare DMT pickups using the same method of connectors (it was an extremely easy job and it did work well!), maybe i’ll solder them in the future. The Dean bridge didn’t fit at the end and i had to mount the factory one.
Once it was painted and mounted i surprisingly found out that this kit is the only inexpensive SG shape guitar on the planet which is perfectly balanced with no neck dive at all!!!

Doing the setup i was impressed about the ease of achieving a low action (1mm for the 1 string at 12th fret/ 1.5 mm for the 6th string at 12th fret) without fret buzz. I had to file down 2 frets only due to some minor buzzing on 2nd string. After that I was able to set the intonation very quickly.

I was already happy because till that point i already had 2 big surprises, but the final surprise arrived once i plugged it in my Laney tube amp and the tone was really amazing!

So what to say? Once again, thanks to Thomann/Harley Benton for outstanding affordable products and professional service.

I haven't tried the orginal nut and pickups but I wanna give 5 stars because for that price you really cannot get any better, and with a minor upgrading i now have a great guitar for very little money.
