    I have seen a few requests for kit sites, and stumbled on this one. I haven't gave them a test run, so cannot recommend or not recommend. Their SG Set neck RH (mahogany) is out of stock, but there are a couple of SG bolt-ons (basswood) available with varying degree of shape.

    build on and best luck.

    I highly recommend these people,

    I've built a 335 style kit and the woodwork is FIRST CLASS. The pickups are acceptable but I updated and now all who try my "Pit Bull ES-12G" say it's a very special guitar.

    Just now I'm building a resonator "Pit Bull ESR-1", being a new kit it has a couple of teething problems but with knowledge of the small issues I'd still buy it.

    On my bench I also have a 12 string Tele "Pit Bull TL-12S" waiting.

    I also have on back order a Starcaster "Pit Bull FS-1".

    So it's personal experience not second hand comments here.
    I must also say the company owner Adam is hands on and looks after this customers.

    The trouble with most of the kits is that they put the controls in the wrong place. They slant to the rear of the body instead of the correct way.
