Tired of seeing the same guitar kits floating around the web?
Well so were we – that’s why we’ve curated a list of 22 of the best DIY kits available on the internet. The kits are listed in no specific order, so you’re encouraged to look through all of them before you make a decision – #20 and #21 are particularly awesome.
A number of factors went into building this list, but the most important is this: they are all well-reviewed and from reputable kit makers. They’re also not the same generic Stratocaster kits you’re used to seeing (though there is one included for good measure).
There are some left handed guitar kits, models based on the Gibson Explorer / SG / 335, Kramer ’84, Jackson Rhodes V, B.C. Rich Warlock, and even the brand new Gibson Modern Double-Cut (which has been likened to a PRS). There’s even some original models – see for yourself!
