    I would think that you couldn't get much lighter that the HB-4 kit.



    I was going to suggest a headless option as well. In fact, PBG does have a Steinberger bass kit ... the SHB-4 (guessing you...

    Some good points for sure, Simon. The Overlord tremolos are indeed garbage. The J-Custom replacement trem and head piece I got from HeadlessUSA were about the same price as the KH-1 kit itself.

    Strandberg-style Headless

    Seems that there has been an increase in makers of headless guitars. The Strandberg body seems pretty popular, and I've seen it as a kit elsewhere. Would that be a possibility here?

    Yup, exact same thing happened to me on my KH-1 build. You'll like the J-Custom bridge. It's worlds better. Take a look at their headpiece as well.

    That really is a great-looking instrument. Nice...

    What Simon said. Check and re-heat all of your solder joints. Cold solder happens easily, and is easy to miss.

    Thanks. Here are some pics of the finished instrument. I'm not finished tweaking the set-up yet, but I'm already liking how comfortable it is to play. So far, it's everything I'd hoped it would be.

    The finish is the most obvious difference, with the J-Custom being a bit flatter and smoother. This may be a result of...

    Of course, it occurred to me as I was laying in bed last night that I haven't yet applied any shielding to the various cavities. So, that'll likely delay finishing it this weekend.
