Build Your Own...Guitar Kits

Lets talk about a DIY guitar,or build your own guitar.You can choose the body material and shape,along with the neck material and finger board material,along with the fret size.Do you want a stop tailpiece or a vibrato style bridge,or maybe a Floyd Rose style.How about the pick pick up,two or three?Do you want single coils or double coils,or mixed!Maybe even an active pick up system.That is one with an onboard pre-amp for more boost.Oh,the gears/tuners,do you want general or locking.How about the nut?Should it be bone,plastic,graphite or maybe brass.The hardware,black?Oh,and lets not forget about the pots....250 k or 500 k ohm :-).
These are all questions i ask myself when considering a kit or custom made to order guitar.It really can be much easier than this!And there are several companies that make it that way.They have the questions,you give the answers....pretty simple.You just got to know what you want!And building your own guitar from a kit is not for everyone,but can be rewarding for others!And some are,what you might call..."Dummy Proof" kits.Other words,pretty simple to build.The biggest task is the unfinished body,the sanding and painting!But,you can get kits that have this done for you already,a painted or finished body.
There are several highly rated companies that offer kits of all types,even acoustic guitar kits.So check out these links and reviews....enjoy.Hey,the least...your awareness will be increased through reading this article or blog.That is,"Just what do i want from a guitar".

You can all have custom kits made during their production runs.
