Great kit!By: Kris on 18 May 2022Ordered & built this kit a couple of months ago and the guitar has really stood up so far. The wood on the body & neck came very smooth, bar one defect, and prepped for spraying however I took it down with some super high grit paper and finished the guitar in Tung Oil. The pre-loaded scratchplate is really handy for beginner DIY builders as there is no soldering involved (Grounding wire can be wrapped around the trem piece instead of soldering without issue) and the neck fits just right into the body. I assume the wood has been fumigated at some point and it is imbued with a fairly strong smell resembling smoked cheese and cured meat which I still haven't been able to get rid of, lol. There was only one issue with the kit which was a rather large gauge in the side of the neck that I needed to sand out and fill. This probably should've been picked up by QC however I was so eager to get on with the kit I didn't bother returning. I'm sure Artist would've been happy to replace them as their service is top-notch. Overall, an awesome kit at the price point which plays as well as other guitars I have that cost 5-10x the price!
