  • GFS SG kit!

    got this kit for christmas as a total surprise (thanks santa haha). i'm thinking of going with a simple black with gold hardware with faux EMG pickup covers. should be good. really excited to build this. i've always wanted to build a guitar but the idea of making a neck scares the **************** out of me. i like this kit because it's not an easy-peezy-bolt together guitar. i like to think it's building my own guitar with the hard parts already done. but enough with my yammer'n here's some pics:

    bag-o-parts. probably not going to use any of these haha

    the neck pocket's pretty loose though. gonna need to fix that



    there is a drop right below the fretboard.. i guess i'll fill it or something

            I've always been curious to try one of their kits but always fear what I see with yours - an inhability for these producers to run the grain of the wood parallel to the neck. Then you also wind up with pieces that are horribly mismatched. Not knocking your guitar, but you're pretty much stuck doing a solid color or at the least, with yours, a wide burst. Could always lay down a thin veneer too.

                Ive looked at them for a wile... cant beat the price, but I wish I could get one without being cut out for the pickups. I want to build one with P90's.

                  Good luck! With that grain mismatch are you going to do a solid color?
