Experience with guitar kits anyone?

Recommended Posts

Hey does anybody have any experience building an electric guitar kit from Stew mac or Solo? I am trying to decide between a Stew Mac SG kit or a kit from Solo as a first introduction to guitar building. Is the more expensive Stew mac kit worth the money? They both seem to be very highly reviewed. And if it helps I am planning to upgrade parts like pickups and hardware. Thanks!

can't speak to the quality of what they sell today, but 20 years ago I bought a flamed maple/mahog tele body from them and it was very high quality for the price.  I think back then it cost me $150ish... but it's a 4A top and really nice.   Generally stew mac stuff tends to be pretty good quality but a hair overpriced.
