holes oversized

The first problem i've got with a stew mac winding kit. The holes are oversized and magnets are to long (shoould be 0,531 but they are 0,710) -- hope this won't happen again

good kit

is a very good kit, just a detail that can fix it by filing some holes covered pickup, however this detail, the result is very good, even with good practice can improve outcome of pickups of large factories.

hopefully they can correct the details of the holes covered pickups, or add in the manual I joined this step.

holes in top fiber oversized

This is my first kit with a problem. the magnet adjusted well in the bottom but the top fiber passed through, I had to glue it. Also the plastic cover was undersized, after a little sand, fit well.

+1 on "minor flaws"

The bobbin top and bottom do not line up. The supplied cover doesn't fit. Neither does a Fender cover. Other than that,they are nicely made.
This is the first problem I have had with any pickup kit.

A couple minor flaws

Easy to assemble, the instructions are easy to follow too. The issues I have are the height of the magnets not being vintage spec, the polepiece spacing being off, and the plastic covers that come with the kit don't even fit the pickups...
