Alder Guitar Kits

It's easy to find cheap guitars at any guitar store. So why build your own? The reason is simple: an instrument built by your own hands will always be of greater sentimental value, and it is priceless. Each guitar tells a story, and each one is unique. If you want to build your own guitar, but don't know where to start, let our Alder Body Guitar Kits be your first DIY build!

Alder is a great tonewood for building guitars, and it's the wood we use for our selected DIY kits. The wood has a great range of tones depending on how it's used in the construction of a guitar.

Build a DIY guitar with our Alder Guitar Kits.
