Just received notification that the new project will be arriving today! MusicMan style DIY kit from Solo Music Gear . I had never heard of these guys before but one of the guys who has helped me through the process of learning the correct way to finish guitars speaks very highly of them and has received a couple of kits to profile on his YouTube channel. He recommended them to me so I decided to give them a shot. Will post pics of the process as I move through the build. Thinking about a driftwood color for the body with an oiled neck. Will be replacing the cheapo pickups with a Seymour Duncan replacement for sure. Will need to look at the tuners etc once I get into the box. Crappy strings will be replaced with EB Slinkies of course.
