    New to Forum - first build coming up (JBA-4M)

    Howdy,

    Absolute noob from Brisbane here. Played since I was young, never done a build or even maintenance on a guitar before.
    Decent enough at basic woodwork and pretty good at soldering, so I'm cautiously optimistic yet prepared to mess up a fair bit ;)

    Community looks great on here thankfully, as I'm sure I'll have many questions.
    Will start a build diary soon, about to dive into the instruction manual.

    Got the JBA-4M kit, all stock except i have a replacement graph tech nut.
    Keeping all other stock parts until I actually get it together properly, then will look at upgrading whatever seems to need it.

    Cheers,
    Ryan

    Welcome aboard Ryan, if you get in any strife with any part of your build, sing out and the rescue crew usually comes a running!

    Look forward to seeing how you go, just take your time, remember to walk away from it if you're getting frustrated with something and above all have fun with the process!
