I’ll be curious to see if you start having similar issues as you put it together.

Even fully finished, the guitar was far from what I would call stellar.

I honestly think this guy throws these things together and sends them out without caring, especially since he probably knows most people won’t send it back for these minor problems. Oversight my ass on this one. No fucking way he didn’t see that scratch as he was packing it lol.

In all fairness, it's just wood, electronics and craftsmanship that make a guitar. Technique of assembly, finishing and set up separate most decent instruments from great ones. Nobody is far more likely to turn out an epic build out of these kits than you or I could under the instructions of a Gibson employee at their factory. A great build is an art and having done it many times makes all the difference in experience of little things like glue choice, finish, fit, setup, even pickup height, not to mention nut height, fret dress, etc etc.....

If I can't fix it, I can fix it so no one else can.

Lol. Raf is a great dude and I'm a nobody poster. ( See what I did there?) Hope he's okay with what is said but it's the truth. Fwiw, I'm in manufacturing a machinist for a whether well known company.

Another update (7/27). Guitar is out of the clamps, Weight is 7 lbs 5 ounces. Parts weigh 1 lb 6.5 ounces, so it will probably come in under 9 lbs when finished...

I really like that grain filler. Not the easiest to work with, but the color is gorgeous.

It looks awesome.

Paul - how is the wood in this kit? Decent enough quality? How about the machining?
