Great kit

The ev is a great kit. Body and neck were awesome. I upgraded all the hardware and electronics but the kit itself is awesome

Thank you for your nice words John! Great build here!

I thought that it was a decent kit. The only thing I would change is the breadstick for this kit and flame maple top on it.

Looks better than advertised, but requires some tweaking

Pluses:
- Original design
- The model I received has top and bottom veneer which actually looks incredible after finishing
- The wood quality is good, finish was easy
- The neck is really well cut and made. The fretboard is nice, the frets are where they should be, and it seems to be all leveled
- Almost everything fits perfectly: I was afraid of having to do rework on the neck-body connection, but everything was perfect there
- Wire length has enough wiggle room

Minuses:
- Even with experience and visiting a luthier it was impossible to get the "Floyd Rosd" (sic) to keep tone due to the low quality. I decided in the end to block it in place with wood, now I have a fixed bridge. Now I understand the high price of the real Floyd Rose...
- The tuners are flimsy, but due to the locking mechanism at the nut it doesn't bother me that much. They look rather cheap though
- The humbuckers sound ok for a beginner guitar - but as I might want to play gigs with it I decided to buy a new set to get a better tone
- The wires had a different color than what is written in some texts and shown on the pictures - this led to some confusion as it was my first time wiring a guitar
- The holes of the back plate are completely wrong, they need redrilling. As the original holes are under the plate though, it's ok

In conclusion, it's a good guitar for a first project. If you want one you want to play extensively with I'd rather suggest a fixed-bridge guitar kit. Or a more expensive kit...

Great Gift Idea! Learned Some New Skills, too!

First time builder and wanted to share my experience. I did a LOT of research before pulling the trigger on this kit. What drove me to it was that it was simply different that all other kits out there and I didn't want a strat, Les Paul, etc. An oversimplification of this guitar is that it is a LP style, but with a double locking tremolo.

Shipping was on time and all the parts were included. For the wood, considering this was a relatively inexpensive kit it turned out pretty good. The downside for this was that some of the smaller pre-drilled holes for screws were slightly misaligned, but that was a simple fix with a power drill.

An issue that happened for me was the prewired pots. I understand the simplicity behind it, but they were not wired correctly for this specific kit. This should have been wired for LP style, but I THINK what I got was for W style. Not the biggest of problems since I had to desolder everything and start from scratch which was actually kind of fun. Learned a new skill along the way :)

Overall would definitely recommend building one of these kits at least once. It forces you to understand how all the different components work together to make a guitar. Definitely had to do some troubleshooting along the way. Customer service here was very helpful as well as YouTube and the various forums I stumbled upon in my google searches. Build time including finishing was about 5 weeks. Wood finish took the most time of all the steps.
