Thread: Fv-1

    Fv-1

    So this is my first ever attempt at a guitar kit. I am 97% useless with tools etc... Anyhoo - Specs: FV-1 kit, Seymour Duncan Invaders, CTS pots, Orange drop caps, Grover locking tuners, Gotoh bridge, epiphone output jack. I'm waiting on a switchcraft 3-way switch and a new truss rod cover to arrive.

    I have found a very peaceful (and sometimes very frustrating) hobby.

    Next project - An explorer!

    Looks awesome. Is it Basswood or Mahogany kit (is it heavy)?
    Cheers

    The FV kits are normally basswood, in the case of the G version, with a thin flame maple veneer top.
    Unless itís marked as an FV-1M kit, they wonít be mahogany.

    I think the headstock angle is about 13 degrees or there abouts? I'll try and check for you on my as yet unbuilt kit tonight
