    I've just purchased (and am anxiously awaiting) delivery of my first kit, a GTH-1. I'm not finding any information on the forum or build guides for this model. Help?

    There isn't a specific guide for every model. The build guide linked to in the first post carries all the generic information necessary.

    This is the appropriate wiring diagram. https://www.pitbullguitars.com/wp-co..._tele_2014.pdf

    Best to start a build diary and ask any kit-specific questions there.

    Thanks, a lot of great info in this guide. Quick general question and any info would be appreciated. Thanks!
    - Pages 14 -16 is about fret leveling, crowning, etc. It states that the neck should come with a slight convex box and seems to instruct leveling from that profile. Shouldn’t the neck be completely flat (no bow whatsoever) before leveling frets?

    Yes, that is correct. That particular information flow could use a little clarification or re-ordering.

    I believe that guide is still a work in progress, or at least a fluid document, and graciously compiled by a Dedicated volunteer. I'm sure it will get sorted in the next release.

    Ah, that makes total sense. This is my first build so I'm still trying to sort things out. Appreciate the reply and the great community here. Thanks.
