    Lower bout on 175s is 16", not 17", as well. L5s are 17".

    Hmm. Interesting. Wonder what the logo on the headstock says. It also appears to be fully hollow without blocking under the bridge area. Wonder if that is the case. Makes me wish that I wouldn't have done the Steinberger kit and did this instead.

    Maybe it's just those pictures, but I see a LOT of patches and mistake fill-ins and cover-ups in the pictures. Look like "leftover" thirds (back 2nds) to my eyes.

    Some of it looks like tape masking from the finishing process.

    You do get what you pay for. In the cases of more expensive brands, however, you pay for more than you get.
