    Amazing quality, super easy to set up, and took about 10 minutes. I haven’t soldered anything in over 10 years and still got it done first try. I would say the only mildly difficult part was despldering the original PCB, but it’s naturally difficult with 14 year old hardware

    Great and works awesome!
    Highly recommend.

    May I suggest an alternative for people doing this modification that they could just add a spacer to the raise the board up where the screw mount is and then cut out a majority of the plastic in the neck to get everything to fit in. This is a method that I found reduces the percentage of human error doing this mod.

    If you remove content from the buttons instead of the neck, although very possible, it’s somewhat difficult/tedious to get them all the same depth.

    If you cut the plastic fins that would support the underside of the fretboard when you press on frets, you can sink the board lower, essentially the same end result but alternative approach.

    if you cut all of it out, you can also add layers of 3M foam inside of what you cut out so that it not only reduces the echoing rattle sound of the guitar plastic but also acts the board support when the frets are pushed down.
