Hi, all, recently finished  gitty 4string kit, used the shorter banjo kit bridge, filed it down quite far, where the  ball ends are almost touching the top. Plays quite well, but i tuned it down to FCFA Because i formerly played 4string e.Bass,the GDGB tuning sounded too high for me.Also ran a ground wire from output jack to barrelhouse bridge.Lipstick pickup very clean through amp.Drilled access hole on back near output jack and installed star disk over it.

Good on you for making that guitar your own by modifying the kit to your tastes, Craig. Glad you dig it, man. Did you finish the guitar in any particular way, with paint or stain? Would love to see a pic here.
