    Re: cheap build kit

    I kind of figured as much, but still curious. I have an IV kit on the way soon, this looks like something I could experiment with.

    Well I bought it, but they are out of stock at the moment and won't have any for about 3 weeks! I'll try to post my progress on a new thread when I get it started.

    I I'm not sure if he would do it or not, but he's refreted my webber. He repares and sells ventage guitars mainly. It's worth a shot I suppose.

    Re: IV F5 kit

    I agree it takes some pressure off, and a lot of risk! I could take it to a local shop and pay them to cut the channel, your right.

    IV F5 kit
