This kit contains everything you need to build a complete, playable guitar, except your choice of finish.
This was my first PBG kit and it was a great choice for a budding luthier. The ash body had a very nice figure, the maple neck was reasonably well fretted (considering the cost) and required little levelling.
When building an ash kit a word to the wise would be to seal the body with timbermate. Ash has a tendency to skew stain/dye colours so just be aware.
I finished this build Oct 2014 and it still my go-to single coil guitar. The stock pups are really nice. I’ve put many hours into it and it holds tune surprisingly well providing you have set the trem up well (lube EVERYTHING and correct tension).

Loved making this guitar and how it sounds… Recommended for a first, but don’t think it’ll be your last.
