Check it out. Everything's stock, plays suprisingly well, pickups are a little below average, not that bad though. hardware is pretty decent as is the electronics. I'd be happy to answer any questions!

well the longest part is the painting. it took a while, with me not even really doing anything. my father's friend painted the thing, he works in a car body place. getting it together and all the electronics and stuff isn't hard at all. it took me 2 moths of actual work maybe. and that's just because im somewhat lazy.

If you're thinking about it, I'd say definitely look into the Saga kits, it's a great learning experience and you get yourself a decent guitar out of it too.

If you have more money defintely look at warmoth, they've got some great stuff over there. From what I've heard the quality is amazing also.

OH... MY... GOD!!!
If I made a guitar I would want to make one like yours... lol
what type of wood did you use to the body, fretboard and neck? and where did you get the plans?

its from a Saga Les Paul Kit. google that, im too lazy. IT has a flame maple top, binding basswood body. i just chose to paint over the top because it wasn't that nice. fretboard is rosewood, maple neck. no plans the whole thing was already shaped it was just painting, finishing, shaping the headstock and putting it together (hardware, electronics etc)

Imo, you've ruined that guitar with the picguard. it looked better with out. but then I hate LPs with pickguards. just looks out of place. but if you like it, that's all that matters.

Love the paint job, the lines on the flames are nice and sharp, makes for good contrast.
I know you said your dads friend did the paint work, but do you know how he did the blue bursts in the flames at the bottom?

I really wasn't expecting anything amazing out of the guitar, considering I just got a Schecter C-1 Classic for my b-day. But it is a pretty good guitar, and even if it wasn't- I'd like to build a guitar from scratch later on and I think this helped me to understand some of the basics of putting a guitar together, wiring it up etc. So I do feel it was worth the money. And I have no clue about that kit, looks similar to a saga kit, try to find someone whos bought one or reviews somewhere.

alright i have a new question, and i didnt want to start a new thread about it cause it's probably against the rules. maybe someone will help me out here.
I'm thinking about buying a Fernandes sustainer fsk 101 kit. i dont like the neck pickup on this guitar anyways, its extremely muddy.
But anyways I don't have a router, or anything like that. and im wondering if i need to route room for the sustainer board,battery etc. and could i do this somehow with hand tools and without a router?
thanks to anyone who might help here.

I think i'm right in saying its been airbrushed, so the white has been airbrushed over the blue leaving the blue spots. Nice guitar btw.
