    Great straight forward kit. Quite easy to put together. Neck feels great, a little chunky for what i’m used to, but nothing extreme. My only issue was the nut was glued in incorrectly (easily fixed).

    For an inexperienced kit-builder this is an ideal start. I have made many mistakes in its construction, but I have learnt from these, and the kit still functions and the Wudtone finish has made a reasonably priced kit hold its aesthetic own to other guitars in my collection.

    Highly recommended.

    Brilliant build. My first kit build from Pit-Bull guitars but definitely not the last!
    Great support and instructions, really simple to build and play – Love it!
