    I used to have one. I added the humbucker and active electronics with and Ash body. It was very harsh sounding. I cut through 3 guitars but was very limited in tone.

    The kit was fairly easy to assemble. I liked the quality of the everything except the tone.
  3. I have a B4 that was made at the factory, if you'd like to hear about that

    or are you only interested in hearing about the kits
  4. I built a BK4F fretless that plays like a DREAM! I love to playbthat sucker! I definitely recommend.

    I am currently building a BK5 right now with the humbucker in the bridge position. So far, so good.

    Definitely easy to understand and build. Give it a try.
