    Has anyone experience/thoughts on the MLR Factory guitar kits on Reverb? I have put together a strat body with a bolt on neck from an eBay kit a few years ago, which was okay...this one stikes my fancy for many reasons: Rickenbacher look, can be any color, won't break the bank. Can a glue in neck be successfully set without jigs, etc?

    I note from another site that this may be a copy of a '60s Teisco Imperial guitar?

    In any event, this is the one for reference:

    Looks like a Rickenbacker copy to me.

    You'll want a couple of clamps for the neck assembly.

    I have no experience with those kits but it really looks nice.
    I've built a bunch of kits, and some are much better than others, but that one appears to be well made.
    Yes on the Rickenbacker idea.
