Grizzly Heirloom Guitar Kit (H6083)

In my quest to build instruments I scooped up a guitar kit from Grizzly Tools during a closeout sale. This kit was normally over $400 but was on sale at half price so I bought it. The kit is a 22 fret PRS style guitar with a rather decent quilted maple top. Here are a few snaps from the build.

I used all the kit parts except the plastic nut which I replaced with bone. As you can see, I also shielded the cavities with copper tape. The kit did have a problem which at least one other builder confirmed (on the web); there was no hole between the control cavity and the bridge so I had to make one to run a grounding wire. This important wire grounds the bridge which in turn grounds the strings. Otherwise it is a reasonable kit with fair hardware.
