So, I was oogling this kit for months and I finally managed to claim it. I am going to give a detailed review of the whole process of assembly.
First off, packaging. Very well, very securely done, except for a very small dent in the back, however with the roads and vehicles that drive around delivering packages in my country, I am surprised it's only one and is miniscule.
The wood is sealed very well, although I would put another 2-3 layers just in case, as well as to bring out the grain a bit more, but that's just my kink. Solid 4-5 piece body(dunno if i counted right).
Fittings and holes. Almost perfect. The neck went in like a glove and no work on it was needed. Holes for the parts were made perfectly, with the exception of the bridge holes, where I had to hammer them quite much, until they go all the way in. Seeing as hammering is even in the manual, again I see it as normal.
The neck itself is beautiful, no sharp frets, straight and beautiful. I only needed to touch the nut just a bit so the strings would fit more securely.
Pickups are different than the ones on the image. I got metal plated ones, instead of the waffles, however it was actually easier to figure out what goes where and how. In terms of sound they are extremely well for my taste.
I've read a lot of Harley Benton kit reviews that have the same grievances about not enough detailing on the wiring system and 'guess work' wiring. While true, in this case you can somewhat find your way by the length of the cables in correspondence with the holes, so not entirely a big deal.
There is only one thing that really irked me, and that was the strings packaging. They were bundled up and knotted so much and so tightly, that I had a very difficult time separating them, resulting in one string having a bend, that I somewhat fixed upon setting up. Still, it's not something that takes away from the quality of the guitar itself.
Overall, this is my first DIY guitar and the way it sounds, all stock and everything, is simply amazing. Everything is tight, solid and works well. For me, it's good to go as it is, and should I wish to upgrade, now I know how to do it.
