Our Guitar Builder’s Apprentice Kits are composed of high quality American made CNC guitar parts. They are perfect for hobbyists looking to grow their guitar tech & luthiery skills, or full time builders looking to grow their guitar business and fill orders faster. We’ve taken the same CNC roughed stock that we use for our custom guitar bodies and necks and left the final sanding and assembly for you. All of our parts are made to exacting specifications and made to fit without issue. Leaving you with as little work as possible while saving you labor & tools costs.


Our set-neck joint is made to our specs. The heel is angled, allowing for a flat neck pocket.

No scarf joints! These are made with a one-piece neck shaft for added strength and durability.

The process of building our kit guitars and basses is straight forward and requires little experience in woodworking or in instrument building. The entire instrument can be assembled with a few simple tools. Setting the instrument up for your playing style is also straightforward. We will guide you though the basic process in our instruction manual. For more complex or particular setup requirements, we suggest that you work with a professional for setup - just as you would with any instrument that you purchase.

Tools needed for assembly:

  • Philips #1 and #2 screwdrivers
  • wire clippers (to trim strings)
  • string radius gauge (we provide one with the kit)

The process of finishing the instrument can be very simple or very complex. See our guitar finishing pages for some pointers. You will need:

  • 200+ grit sandpaper or sanding blocks
  • finish of your choice

Full specification can be found on the following pages:

We offer several options to allow you to tailor your guitar to your guitar building experience and your goals for your instrument, depending on the exact kit model:

  • Pickups: All of our instruments come with good basic pickups. We offer you options to change these pickups for several optional pickup sets. Note that these optional pickups will not come pre-wired/soldered. Soldering of these pickups will be required.
  • Wiring: If you chose the optional snap together wiring, then all of our instruments come pre-wired and pre-soldered, so that you can assemble the instrument without needing to do any soldering. You simply snap a few connectors together to complete the electrical connections before you screw down the pickguard, control panel, and output jack plate. This is detailed on the guitar kit wiring and hole drilling description page. If you would prefer to not have your kit pre-wired and pre-soldered, please let us know.
  • Drilling: If you so choose, then every guitar kit comes with some holes pre-drilled for you. However, we offer you the option to not have some holes drilled at the factory. This is detailed on the guitar kit wiring and hole drilling description page.
