Hello all PGK team;)
I wanted to say that I was very satisfied with the kit that I bought you, it sounds crazy, mega rock guitar! grin emoticon
I exploded view to realize the black over goldtop heavy relic, everyone finds beautiful and it sounds great!
So I think that soon I will come to you to buy a sg jr and a flying V!
You address some pictures of my work hoping you like it! grin emoticon

Here is a guitar that is pretty awesome. It is 59 Carved Top with the Graphtech Ghost System installed. It has the most wonderful, full, acoustic guitar sound with just a bit of that edge you’d expect from an electric. Ken was very happy with the end result and we love making stuff like this..
Here is what Ken had to say:
Thought I would send you a few pick of the fantastic work you and yours did for me…I do not have the tools nor the patience to complete a project like this but Precision Guitar Kits sure do…the work that the CNC shop, the Bespoke build crew and paint is first rate…if you want to have a custom guitar built for you, I can recommend this wholeheartedly…fill your cart and press the buy button…then sit back and wait for “Precision” to arrive!
Hi there – Here a few pics of my SG Jr. build from a few years back. It plays like butter, and resonates like nothing else I’ve ever played. I’ve recommended PGK to anyone interested in rolling their own. Great bones – just like you say!
Named this one the “Les Ismore”. The P90 is an Alnico 2 kit from Stew Mac (8.4k dcr) The bridge is a Pigtail – and the studs and bushings from them are just spectacular. The tone cap was rescued from an old Hammond organ preamp. Wish I had more of em! It was hard (for me anyway) to get an accurate photo of the color. It’s a slightly yellowed white – nitrocellulose that I mixed up here. Thanks again!
INCREDIBLY lively, resonant and responsive.
Truth is that I was going for a Neil Young “Old Black” thing– Bigsby, Firebird/P90 pups– but bought the wrong (’54) LP. Live and learn.
Will get it the 2nd time around…. and have two killer/different Carved Tops in the stable 😉
You guys do excellent work. And the MojoAxe wraparound plus Lollars puts the icing on the cake. Wow.
I am sending you some photos of my recent build. I am very happy with the results because you provided me the best foundation to complete a great guitar. The project was not rushed and took approximately eight months to complete. I used a Faber bridge and aluminum tailpiece, S.D. Alnico Pro II pickups and vintage wiring with PIO caps. The finish is amber on the top and red mahogany on the back and neck. The Guitar feels and plays very well and is definitely one that will be used. This guitar sounds amazing!
Haven’t heard from you in a while. Guess you are keeping pretty busy. Not surprised with the quality of the kits that you put out. I was going to upload these to the site but there seems to be a communication problem so I thought I would pass these along if you would like to post them. The fit was dead on so I don’t wonder why you are called Precision. So to sum up…’59 Junior Double Cut, sanded down to accept a 3 year Spalted Maple top, Bubinga pickguard and Spalted 1/16″ headstock with a funky little Bubinga truss rod cover to mimic the shape of the headstock. Six screws was overkill but I wanted them to look like the tuners, which are Grover. Tonepros bridge and a Spalted Maple cavity cover which attaches with rare earth magnets for easy removal with a fingernail or pick and Seymour Duncan P-90 Antiquity Series pup which sound fantastic with a custom gold plated cover to match the rest of the hardware and Gibson 500k tone and volume pots. Took a while but I think it was well worth the effort. Thanks, Phil and all the guys at PGK for making this possible. I’m calling it Drop Dead Drop Top or DDD-T.
Thanks again and I look forward to my next kit!
Take a look at this beauty!!!
Hey Phil. Just saying thanks for the beautiful pieces of wood you made me! This is what has resulted of your awesome work! Took me awhile but finally got her done.
