Poor directionsPosted February 6, 2014
For someone like myself...Posted January 4, 2014
The guitar wood is nice and the kit components seem acceptable, but the instructions are so incomplete that for someone like myself who is new to guitars there are too many opportunities to go wrong. Parts are mentioned without explaining what they are, leaving the builder to figure it out or go elsewhere for definitions. Instructions for attaching the rosette (a decorative circle around the sound hole) say to peel it as though it were a sticker. Only after destroying it trying to get a peel started did I find out it really was a water decal. Why couldn’t they have said so? Even worse, after following instructions to clamp the neck while gluing it to the guitar body I discovered the neck was bent down where it was clamped, forcing a convex curve to the neck and resultant buzzing of the strings. They could have emphasized the importance of keeping the neck straight, in which case a thin shim would have done the trick. I am giving two stars for the wood of the guitar and one extra for customer service, which was very responsive in replacing two missing components.
