    It worked out great and sounds excellent. The instructions could have been a bit better but I’ve worked with worse. It was a Saga LP model. It was my first guitar kit but it was all just a learning tool for my next big project that I’d been planning for years: twin custom designed guitars from scratch out of black walnut cut from the lot about 8 yrs ago. I’d been waiting for it to dry out. I have some picks here:

    They were just finished a few weeks ago. The electronics were not easy but it we eventually got them working and they sound great. I need to post some sound samples.

    Sorry.. I was referring to the kit guitars. I thought that’s what the post was about. The MakerShed ad right below the image had me confused. Great instructions by mattthegamer463. I REALLY wish I would had that available for my project. It would have saved a lot of time.
