OK kit, but not great

Included screwdriver only fit the 4 screws for feet not for the other 19 screws (screwdriver head too big). Bottle for glue is so small that it required pliers to squeeze it out. Sanding blocks not up to the task for the amount of sanding required to level front plate with body (ended up using a belt sander). Pilot holes for snares not spaced to match the holes in the snare brackets. Strap clamps 90% useless, cannot pull tight enough (ended up using pipe clamps). Had to drill pilot holes for feet and the 15 screws holding the front plate on. All that being said, the final product sounds good (per my son, the actual musician) and looks OK. If you are used to woodworking projects, you shouldn't be concerned with the previous comments - consider it just FYI. My only real complaint is the misleading 'everything you need is included' tag line for the product.
