Slightly a little different from other DIY kits I’ve put together (Solo Music): this guitar didn’t have any pre-drilled holes for the neck and pick guard. It’s not a big deal and it’s good practice to measure out the scale length yourself.
Make sure you sand the monkey grip very well – mine could have used more sanding but I realized that a little too late as I was already spray painting it.
The guitar turned out pretty well in the end, Upgrading the hardware on kit guitars is never a bad idea.
I still have the PRS guitar to build.* Ocotber 17, 2022
