Here’s Dr. Paul’s D42 – This GMC kit was assembled using a KMG Mega Mold also using the KMG on-line “Success Kit assembly manual.” I did walk Paul through fitting the neck dovetail using my articulating paper method since it is not published on the website.

As Bill Cory points out it is important not to mix and match assembly processes if you are new to the hobby.

I believe this is a stunning first guitar build.

This the message Paul sent with the pics:

Hi Ken,
Just giving you an update. I strung her up sunday. Lots of volume, lots of tone, neck looks straight, and only one fret buzz at the 11the fret (I knew it was high). I'm going to wait a week then work on the action, but as it is right now it's very playable. I think I will put a clear pickguard on it.
