Did this video help you?

BC Bell: Looks good! You may want to put some lemon oil on the fretboard also.

Bryan Smith: Thanks for sharing your build

Rick Rife: You might as well made this kit out of scrap lumber. That is the nastiest looking guitar I have seen outside of a pawn shop. You never used wood filler to get the grain pockets out nor did you finish sand it.You only rough sanded it. When done by hand you should have at least done 320 or better yet 400. Your next project try using a electric sander and don't rush the finsh job. This guitar is worth about $50.00 top end.

ramaroodle: Nice DIY project. I think maybe you should have practiced on some scrap wood first.  No reason not to end up with a first class finish by investing a little more time & elbow grease.

vinnie dolly: is that TITEBOND II the best choice ever ,the best wood glue in the whole world?

warptek: Gluing that neck, you need way more than a few hours. I'd wait a week before the clamps come off.

Nick Ricketts: That neck join already looks loose before you even sand off the over finish

EJC's Reviews and Toys: 1, Don't sand the neck. its suppose to be a tight fit into the body. 2, The over all staining is good, but I would have clear coated everything. This is not  going to have a glass shine to it. Also the clear will make the blue and black stand out more. 3, Glue the neck and body together first. 220 grit sand paper is not a finish sand paper. Should of sanded in steps. 220, 800, then 600, 400. After the 400 go with a 1500 as a final sanding. Will make the wood very smooth and flat. Hell 220 sand paper might be too aggressive, start at 800 and work your way  down. I've worked on a lot of  wood staining in my time.

Tony W: could you have put any more glue on that joint??? eeek!

Matthew Tan: Wait today is 2015

a hyde: I would have clamped the body and neck side to side also. franklins red label is recommended by most builders as it can be heated and removed for repairs. I also wonder if his measurements have been double checked against a guitar of similar size and scale. not bad for a beginner tho.

Craig Serrels: more clamps please...2hrs.... two days at least......

Whats Wong?: how much is a few hours?

Nikolas H-L:
woow dud this is siick man

Mike Szaroletta: Is this guy for real?

Scott McKinstry: I'm loving the fit on this kit. Looks like there aren't any extreme spacings. No need for shims and all that. Looks great so far Fred!

Phil Angus: Very informative, but the most over used phrase of (this video) the century, 'go ahead'. Drives me crackers! :-(

Robert Brook: +Fred yen im thinking of getting a 335 kit what do you think

TheCodebreaker6191: How do you carve the headstock like a Gibson one. @fred yen

Dan Selvig: A better glue to use would be Gorilla Glue because it will fill in the minute amount of slop introduced by sanding off the stain on the glue joint.
