This is a great quality, easy to build, carved top, set-neck LP-styled dual humbucker pickup electric guitar kit. These kits go together easily, all the parts work together well, and the instrument can be assembled without a lot of experience with woodworking or instrument building.
If you choose, every hole is drilled for each component, including bridge, stop tail piece, pickup mounting rings, rear control covers, tuner screw holes, and strap button mounting holes. We have done most of the hard work for you! The body is well sanded out of the box, but will need light sanding before finishing; no filling should be required.
The top of this LP-styled guitar body is carved, with a veneered spalted maple top layer. The top woods vary pretty widely – but all are interesting and will do great with clear or tinted finish! The pictures show a few examples of these top woods. The neck is a glue in (set) neck. The guitar kit comes with black hardware, LP-style TOM bridge and stop tail piece, two humbucker pickups, and all necessary screws and hardware. A set of strings and a cable are even included.
The kit is completed with chrome hardware with cream plastics (binding, cover plates and humbucker rings).
We no longer have these kits available with Rosewood fingerboards because of restrictions on importing and exporting this wood due to the CITES treaty. Instead, we offer granadillo fingerboards! They look great and feel great! This wood is now a very commonly used substitute for rosewood. It looks and sounds great.
(Sorry that some of out pictures still show rosewood fingerboards and black hardware; we are working to correct this.)
This is not a cheap Chinese manufactured kit of questionable quality where the parts simply don’t work together (like many of the kits that you will find on Ebay, Etsy and Amazon). We proudly manufacture these kits in our shop in Portland, Oregon. We are a family-owned company building products and traditions that we expect to last for a long, long time. We produce instrument kits with exacting specifications, high quality production, and domestic, sustainably-cultivated sources of materials whenever possible.
