Thread: Greetings from Germany

    Greetings from Germany

    Hello,

    just new here. I received my 1st kit (small scale bass). There are some things/features I am not sure if this is "normal" as for such parts that are not finished. On the other hand I am not sure if it is possible to eliminate by finishing. I made some pictures (please check pdf attached).

    Maybe someone could give me some hints and help me here as I am not sure how to continue. Especially the issue with the 2nd and 3rd fret seems difficult.

    Thank You.

    Wilkommen Schmallkowski!

    I would send these photos to adam at pitbull guitars. This is not the quality he would expect in his products.
    Unless you have fully equipped luhtier's workshop, and a lot of patience, i am not sure you can correct these issues, and I am not sure that you should have to for a new kit.

    Thank you for your feedback. That helps me a lot. For me it is very difficult to estimate what I have here, as it is my 1st DIY. Then I will contact Adam. Thank You.
