MrBingping: Was the neck angle already set when you got it? Or did you have to set it? I bought a 335 kit from another dealer and when I set the neck I found that the angle of the neck pocket was wrong
chazzy968: Nice!!! :D I've been considering Precision Guitar Kits for my first LP build; they seem to have the best kits out there. What pickups did you use? I really like Peter Florance Voodoo 59 or Sheptone PAFs. I'll most likely go with Peter Florance though; really like them!
Robert Burns: Precision guitar kits are made in Vancouver B.C.
Chris McMahon: I'd rather have your build than a Gibson, and I mean it!
Better quality everything and better neck joint and headstock angle
Love the Bumblebees. I feel the LOVE :D
Chris McMahon: Outstanding :)
MrBluesman14: Google "Precision Guitar Kits". It should be the first cite.
rwieber79: Where can I find this kit?
MrBluesman14: I sent it to a local painter. To my knowledge he did not use grain filler but I could be wrong. There are some great tutorials on how to paint guitars on youtube though. Check out Sullys Guitar Garage.
MrBluesman14: hey. sorry if you didn't get my reply from my other account. It doesn't take long to wire it up and set the neck but painting is the most time consuming part. I'm not sure if you would have enough time to do the multiple coats needed and drying process.
Hayden Ross: You should have enough time for everything but the paint. remember you have to wait for it to dry and do multiple coats. Other than that it didn't take too long to put the hardware in.
Nick Mai: SO HOW MANY HOURS DID THIS TAKE YOUR BTW'S IT IS CAPS IN ORDER TO GET YOUR ATTENTION P.S I WANT TO DO ONE FOR A SCHOOL PROJECT AND IT HAS TO TAKE LIKE A MONTH WITH LIKE 3 HOURS A WEEK SO LIKE 12 HOURS TOTAL THANKS
Clinton Mills: Did you use grain filler on the back and sides of the body?
MrBluesman14: @robottony1 These are bumblebee capacitors. they were made back in the day for 59 les pauls. Its good to experiment with different ones to get a feel for what you like.
MrBluesman14: @TheGinYoung the color is cherry red. I had a local painter (matt danser) do it for me. I think he used the stewmac nitro on it. Its a really great finish.
toneman622: I am going to get one of these precision kits...looks like the best one out there.I like the way you set the neck...surprised that you finished the guitar first thou... THX!
MrBluesman14: @MrBluesman14 Sorry it wouldn't let me extend the comment any longer. Here is the rest. I believe that you can choose on their website what size holes you want drilled for all of these things. If you plan on doing the entire kit be sure to use wood filler or sanding sealer before painting the headstock black because you can see the pores if you don't.
MrBluesman14: @cajunboy2k yes the music is played on the kit. But it is a comparison to a 57 reissue gibson. The kit plays first then the gibson second and they rotate. except on the distorted section where they each play soft distortion then hard distortion before switching. The kit came to me only needing some sanding. I haven't found any faults other than the tuner holes only fit bigger size tuners(like grover) and the bridge and tailpiece holes will only fit the specific ones on the website.
Gin & Young: What is that colour on the top? Did you mix it or can it be bought?
cajunboy2k: I really like this video. Is the music made on the guitar from the Precision kit? Its beautiful by the way.
I'm looking at getting a kit myself at the first of the year. What is your impression of them? If there are any faults with the kit, what would they be?
