Unfortunately the price of this kit has gone up to a whopping $72 now (US warehouse shipping option) this happens often, the price changes between when I film the video and when it’s uploaded. Sorry about that guys.
This kit is branded by Ammoon, the same brand that made that awesome mini looper pedal I reviewed. The first thing I noticed is while it’s a standard 3 Piece basswood body that you’d expect at this price point, it actually has beautiful wood grain. It does have a knot in it, which I think most people would consider a flaw, but I just think it adds character. But still, look at this thing, this is the best wood grain I’ve seen on a basswood kit. I’m sure I just got lucky with this one, I wouldn’t expect them all to look this good. The neck has excellent figuring in it as well. And the fretboard is actual rosewood, not that Blackwood treks crap that we are starting to see due to that import/export ban on rosewood. Something else you’ll notice about the neck is the headstock. The picture online shows it pre shaped, but the one I received is a paddle so you can shape it yourself, which is awesome. I much prefer to shape my own headstock, so this is really good news. Last thing about the neck, the frets look like they haven’t been touched, so I expect They will need to be leveled and crowned. The neck fits in the neck pocket pretty snug. upon closer inspection, I noticed that it had been shimmed at the factory to get this tight fit. That’s pretty rare. Most of the time with these kits they would just send it to you with a loose or sloppy fit. So major props there for fixing it at the factory. Lastly, the kit came with the standard crappy hardware and cheap electronics. I expect some of it will get the job done, and some of it will need to be replaced. This kit also came with an unexpected set of instructions that seem to be some kind of hybrid between Chinese, English, and google translator. And they read….
