    I was thinking about picking up one of the lp jr kits on their page- I'd upgrade the hardware and pickup- but I was wondering how the necks are?

    Has anyone bought one of these?

    It's pretty funny that they offer the Les Paul & Mockingbird kits with an Epiphone headstock.

    The JR. looks more like a Gretsch BST.
    It's cool- i'd buy one for $150.

    Wow! Very intrigued by this site! Never built a guitar before but after checking out the HC threads on this subject, might not be too hard at all.
