5.0 out of 5 stars good set, good sound 23 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
bought as a project for my son.
a lot of fun cutting head/painting/polishing/assembling.
produces very good quality sound although soldering had to be tweaked based on internet sources and new strings were required fro better quality.
all in all very happy.

I was quite excited... It arrived on time and was well packaged.
On unpacking it however, I was very disappointed as it turned out to be a LP Guitar Kit rather than the JB Bass Guitar Kit that I ordered.
It did look nice though - The body was a bit light weight but ok, the neck looked good and all the other parts were there.
Shame it had to go back (Hope to re-review it once I get the replacement that has been ordered).

UPDATE: Kit replaced by Amazon without issue. Replacement Item quality was ok for the money except for a few significant issues...
1) Missing screws for the control plate - causing annoyance finding replacements.
2) Poor quality screws for attaching the tuners - one snapped in the headstock causing major annoyance - finding replacement screws and having to work around the embedded screw that I could not remove.
3) The guitar was pre routed for everything except it did not have a pre-drilled hole for the bridge/tailpiece ground wire - this was a bit awkward to do myself and is definitely not optional.
4) The guitar body had unfortunate markings in some of the wood so was not suitable for the clear finish I was hoping to apply - not really unexpected at this pricepoint.

OVERALL : I ended up with a working bass guitar that I enjoyed building. However, you get what you pay for.

1.0 out of 5 stars very low quality 11 April 2014
By johnny
Verified Purchase
the wood is cheap and very soft and came with a split in part of the body where the neck is connected, then the screws i was given to attach the tuning keys all snapped inside the head laving me with a useless bass, BRILLIANT. i am not happy with this at all, especially as i have spent a lot of time and money putting it together!!!
