This kit was pretty easy to put together. The longest part of the project was applying the wipe on Amber stain and wipe on poly. It took several coats of each, especially the poly. Took a little time to set up to my liking. The nut slots were way too high and needed to be filed considerably to get it where it needed to be so that is was in tune when playing the first few frets. The wipe on decal in the headstock are my initials Which really makes it a one and only.
