I wanted a winter project so I bought a $99.00 Tele Guitar Kit that arrived this morning. When I opened the box everything was packed like it was a far more expensive product. The major parts such as the neck and body were enclosed in well padded foam bags and packed in individual boxes within the heavy shipping box. I looked at the neck first and it felt nice. no frets hanging over and they were beveled & smooth to the touch. The neck itself was very smooth. But it had smaller frets and the neck was drilled off center. That was a bummer. The tuner holes were drilled perfectly in alignment for Gotoh style tuners. The neck has a "Composite Ebony" fingerboard. (paper epoxy and die named "Composite Ebony" to make it sound better than it is. But the Bullet I have is a plywood body.. and they call that a "laminate body" since that sounds so much better than plywood. I understand that some Gibson's and a few other brands have also used "Composite Ebony" fingerboards. They also use this laminate for skate boards and a myriad of other uses as it is very durable. Then I opened the the body. The wood was heavier than I thought it would be. It is made of Okoume wood. The grain has a Mahogany look to it. No dings or problems with the body, and the neck hole drilling matched the off set of the beck. So no problem there other than I would have to re drill the holes to match a Fender hole pattern. But I probably won't need to if everything lines up as good as it looks. Then I opened the hardware box and checked those parts. The tuners were a Gotoh style and felt quite firm. Time will tell when I get strings on it. Plating on the neck-plate looked good and the neck-plate had standard hole spacing on it. The control plate looked good with only a couple of edge flaws on the bottom where it doesn't matter much. The tailpiece looked a bit rougher on a top edge but still wasn't a deal breaker. It I can't live with that individually sold after market tailpieces are all over the place and most of them look pretty good. The plating on everything has mirror finish flawless chrome plating. You also get a set of strings, a guitar cord an instruction & a construction manual. I was impressed with how good it looks and the workmanship for $99. But then time will tell. The big test will come when it is finished and plugged into an amplifier. The offset holes in the neck & body are rather irritating but they can be re drilled if I can't live with that.
