A maker can see every little thing that did not turn out as well as expected. Thus my use of the word crude. If you have better wood working skills or better eyes than I have some of the beauty marks might have been avoided.
On contents of both kits I would rank as:
The blue one has a replacement bridge, tuners and strings as I wanted to try going black with the hardware and strings.
The brown one I did not like the first stain job that I did and I went down to raw wood to try again. In some of the areas I needed to use a dremel tool to do the curved areas. It burned a little too deep. Thus the crude. But my son liked the rustic look so much that he ended up adding it to his collection.
I ended up replacing the pots and wiring in both, but the improvement in sound was marginal.
All in all it was great fun and taught me a lot. But… it took too much time from working my way through the course and working on my technique.
