Tops are often a coveted aesthetic on guitars as they tend to be made from fine woods. When choosing a top keep the thickness in mind. A 5/8” thick piece will be able to be carved like a violin. ¼” drop tops are generally glued to flat top bodies or bodies with one or two shallow bevels that the top can be bent and formed to, they are not usually used for guitars with carved tops because the carve would likely go past the top exposing the body wood.

Maple is the traditional choice, but as you can see, there are tremendous alternatives to select from.

Honduran Mahogany is the traditional choice for this type of guitar, with Khaya being a very close substitute for Mahogany (we can freely export this wood). Each wood imparts a different tonal signature to the instrument. If you intend to paint your body a solid opaque color, you might consider a less porous wood like Alder. This will save you a step in grain filling and give you a nice even finish.

  • Honduran Mahogany neck blank, 1st grade, 35" x 3" x 7/8" (ref: NKHM1353)

    A 35" neck generally allows you to produce your neck and heel from the same stock which prevents issues with color/grain mismatch.

    First grade necks and heels are straight-grained, quartersawn with a 25° variance off quarter allowed.

    Khaya has often been overlooked as a substitute for Mahogany. Though it is an attractive wood, the wide pores, lighter weight and pinkish color we usually see in this species clearly distinguish it from "the real thing". We have found that there are different strains of Khaya which look nearly identical to Honduran Mahogany - or at least present themselves as the best substitute we have come across so far!

A headplate is the top and typically the thickest veneer that makes up the headplate sandwich. On many designs with angled back pegheads this veneer plays the important role of providing the backside of the channel that the nut of the guitar sits in. African Ebony is a popular option because its dark tones accent almost any aesthetic. It is also not uncommon to see a headplate that matches the wood of the fretboard.

The thinner veneers that typically go under the headplate to make up the headplate sandwich. This creates the laminated look where you see fine lines from the side of the peghead. This is a cosmetic touch that many like to see and is easy to create, but is not found on most traditional instruments.

Choose your fingerboard or fretboard. You can add slotting and radius customizations in the next steps. If you prefer to do this work yourself, don't choose any customizations.

Both Indian Rosewood and Ebony are commonly found on the G-style guitars, but choose Ebony if you want to add some decorative inlay in addition to the requisite position markers (dots).

This puts the string’s breakaway point (the edge of the nut) at “true zero”. The Zero Fret option places the nut slot so that it is centered at the zero point of the scale. This works for those who install a zero fret – a fret at the nut position (with the actual nut getting placed just behind it to position the string spacing and guide the strings towards the tuning machines). Some players like a guitar with a zero fret as it helps eliminate the tonal differences between fretted and unfretted notes.

For this kit, the standard nut placement is recommended, but we present options for those who are working from untraditional or hybrid designs.

**If you choose to have your fingerboard slotted, you must make a selection in the remaining fingerboard customizations as well.

Choose the nut slot offset. There will be this much wood left behind the nut position. 1/4" is pretty typical. Those building a Fender style guitar will want to choose an inch, so there is wood to taper into the headstock.

For this kit, no wood is required behind the nut position but we present options for those who are working from untraditional or hybrid designs.

Fingerboard markers are a great way to add a functional aesthetic to your instrument. Most people choose a light material for dark fretboards like rosewood and a dark material for light woods like maple. We also have options like gold, mother of pearl, and turquoise for those looking for a more exotic look. We recommend 6.35 mm for face dots and 2 mm for side dots. Remember that shell can't be exported (due to extra paperwork and fees), so choose plastic and/or stone alternatives if you live outside the United States.

Bone has been the standard for guitar nuts and saddles for a long time. You simply can’t go wrong with a bone nut! It’s a fantastic idea to buy Corian “practice” nuts as well as an extra bone nut or two. The nut is really important for the setup so you want to have every opportunity to make sure you make it well. If you need more nuts than the Kit Wizard permits, they can be purchased outside the Wizard.

Our N1 and N1U offer the perfect size for creating the nuts shown in the plans we suggest.

Depending on your preference you can choose to have all 6 of your tuners on one side of your peghead, the other side, or split between both sides for a symmetrical design. Make sure you buy a set that corresponds to what you have in mind. You may find it useful to utilize “Mini” tuners if you are doing a 6-in-line peghead as they have a smaller footprint and fit more easily on the peghead.

Nickel/Silver fretwire is the most common fretwire and has been the standard for years. Gold “Evo” wire is made from a copper alloy. It’s a bit tougher than nickel/silver and not quite as hard as stainless steel. It’s gold all the way through and will give a very unique appearance to a guitar. Stainless steel is the most durable fretwire you can get, boasting a super long life and great corrosion resistance, however, stainless steel has a tendency to wear down tools a lot quicker and can be difficult to work with.

The FW74 fretwire is our most popular option here.

  • Fretwire, 18% nickel/silver, 4 feet

    Hard, standard size long wearing fretwire. This is easily our most popular fretwire and is used mostly for steel string, but is often used on classical and electric guitars as well. This wire is similar to Dunlop's #6230 wire. 

    Fretwire is sold in either 4 or 100-foot lengths. 4 feet is normally enough for one standard instrument if you're not wasteful, but please check your plans before ordering. For easier installation, fretwire is coiled with the tang toward the inside of the curve. 4-foot sections might be cut into halves for shipping purposes. All of the fretwire we carry will fit into a .023" slot, with the exception of the FW75 nickel/silver wire.

Truss rods are an essential part of steel string guitar design. As the strings are tuned up to pitch the string tension acts on the neck causing it to want to tilt forward. We call this “relief.” A single action truss rod directly counters this. As you turn the nut it puts tension in the opposite direction of the strings. When the neck moves the opposite direction we call it “backbow”. A double action truss rod is capable of putting tension on the neck in either direction and while you will very seldom need it to, this can be quite advantageous for certain situations.

Traditionally, electric guitars only include a one-way truss rod, but our TRED (double acting) is a more popular choice these days. Couple this with two GR0 rods for a very stable neck.

  • Carbon fiber neck reinforcement, 1/4" x 1/2" x 18"

    Carbon fiber exhibits so many of the qualities useful in fine instrument construction — namely, low weight, stiffness, stability, resistance to fatigue and creep. Its low weight and high stiffness – three times stiffer than steel on a weight-to-weight basis, 80% as stiff on a cross-sectional area comparison – offers many advantages to the guitar builder.

    Without fear of fatigue, fan braces (between which a sheet of carbon fiber has been laminated) can be shaved down considerably, allowing the top to be more responsive to string energy.

    Neck reinforcement stock can be laminated in such a manner that the reinforcement continues through the peghead joint, reducing flex and therefore reducing energy loss to the head area.

  • Carbon fiber neck reinforcement, 1/8" x 1/2" x 18"

    Carbon fiber exhibits so many of the qualities useful in fine instrument construction — namely, low weight, stiffness, stability, resistance to fatigue and creep. Its low weight and high stiffness – three times stiffer than steel on a weight-to-weight basis, 80% as stiff on a cross-sectional area comparison – offers many advantages to the guitar builder.

  • Truss rod single rod compression , 17 1/2" x 3/16"

    The compression rod is made from 3/16" stock and is wrapped in high-quality heat-shrink tubing. The adjustment is accomplished by tightening the hex nut on the threaded end of the rod. The rod is held immobile at the opposite end by means of a right-angle bend. The wrapping prevents rattling and ensures a good snug fit without binding in the slot.

  • Truss rod double action welded, 17" x 3/8" (overall length 18")

    Protected by U.S. Patent No. 6,259,008, this is the best rod on the market in our humble opinions. The square stock bears against the bottom of the fingerboard, so no filler strip is necessary. Turn the nut one way and the rod bows one direction, turn the nut the other way, the rod bows the other direction! With this rod, the nut is actually welded onto the adjusting rod which has been right-hand threaded on one end and reverse threaded the other. The bottom, round rod is covered with heat-shrink tubing to protect against rod buzz. This rod requires a slot 1/4" wide x 3/8" deep. The bar-stock dimensions and the round-stock OD with the heat-shrink tubing are the same and that makes for easy installation.

The tunematic-style bridge is a tried and true bridge that really hasn’t required too much updating since its conception. It is comprised of a tailpiece anchors the strings and a bridge piece that the strings rest on. Keep in mind that tunematic-style bridges are generally designed for guitars with a 3-5 degree neck angle. This doesn’t mean you can’t put an S-type tremolo on a single cut guitar but when building your instrument you should keep in mind the relationship between the neck angle and bridge. Remember the goal is for the strings to be right where you want them in the center of their adjustable parameters.
