Why Make Your Own Guitar?

An electric guitar kit allows you to customize and finish your guitar in any way you like. You can order any shape guitar, choose the timber the body and neck made from and then stain or paint your new guitar. It’s also a great project to sink some time into. You will learn a lot about guitars along the way and you will have a great guitar to show for it when you’re done.

How Difficult is it?

Kit guitars come with all the difficult work already done for you. Our guitars come with all shaping, routing, fretwork and electronics already completed. There’s no difficult electronics to wire, our kits require no solder and the electronics are straightforward and able to be clipped in place. You can use a soldering iron however if you prefer. We also offer a full range of tutorials for beginners and after sales support to ensure you are never stuck.

Does it Cost a Lot of Money?

A kit guitar is a cost effective way to own yourself a decent quality instrument. We offer all popular shapes of guitar including Les Paul, Stratocaster, Telecaster, SG and more.  A guitar kit doesn’t require much in the way of tools to assemble and you can be up and running fairly quickly depending on how you choose to finish the guitar (paint or stain the timber). The total cost will be up to you as most popular guitar shapes are available in a range of timbers and components.

Tools Required for Assembling a Guitar Kit

The great news is very little in the way of tools is required. The tools below are just the essentials. Depending on the type of guitar you buy you may only require tools and materials for finishing the guitar (painting).

Masking Tape
3 grades of sandpaper and sanding block
solid colour or stain finish
Steel wool
Clear Finish (lacquer)
Polishing cloth or buffer pad
Ventilation mask
Coping saw or Jigsaw if shaping the headstock

With this small list of inexpensive tools you will be up and running and ready to build your electric guitar in no time.
