“Dear Sir,
A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with Sitka top.
I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce.
The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirely by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a drill press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them.
It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career.
Many Thanks.
ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”

Electric Guitars - Build Your Own

When building an electric guitar, there are a lot of choices to be made - what tuner, what pickups, what humbucker set, etc. Rather than offer electric kits that remove your choices, we have a list of links, below, that will take you to the pages where the items needed to build either a carved top electric or a solid-body electric are located.

This allows you to create a custom guitar that meets your individual needs and budget.
