Gear4music having a sale on some of their kits. Having used two of these (ash strat and tele) as the base for a build (ie sell off most of the hardware and electics that come with the kit and replace with something more interesting) you’ll not get a better quality body and neck (not to mention crap like neck screws etc) for a better price Gear4music Ireland | Musical Instruments, Equipment & Software

in particular the SG styled one. usually go for 25.5 scale with a view to potentially swapping out the neck for an aluminium one but i dont think the 25.75 would work but either way, it looks super. do they play well? last SG (epihpone) i had many moons ago was a bastard to get and keep in tune

I can only speak to the ash tele and strat - good quality wooden parts, so-so hardware, and rubbish electronics. Necks on both had decent fretwork and I could get reasonably low action.
In both cases I’ve been able to off load the bits I didn’t want on adverts.

There’s few tuning issues that I’ve encountered that couldn’t be solved by a better quality nut, or at most a new set of tuners (both of which I would recommend doing with these - although the tuners are grand to be honest)
