    matt stazza's first build TLA-1R

    Hello my names matt, doing my first build of the TLA-1R. My uncle is helping me check measurements, drilling and wiring as he is good at those sorts of things and i dont want to mess up...i may also ask some questions along the way from the community.

    I have seen some of the finished builds and they all look amazing!

    Would a well put together, upgraded guitar and set up compare to an american made instrument? or one costings 1000's??

    Welcome. They may never be comparable with a high end instrument. But with hardware upgrades and set up well they can definitely beat cheap instruments and compare favourably with mid-tier instruments and for a cheaper price.

    No probs, you can usually confirm scale length if you look under the description on the Pitbull site as well. It's usually noted there.
