Everything You Need In One Box
The 12 String LA Electric Guitar DIY Kit is a great value pack that offers you the opportunity to build your own guitar. Without any of the hassle and expense of sourcing all of the parts, everything you need is in one box! Providing you with all the necessary top quality parts and hardware, you are sure to get a great sounding guitar, as well as the fun and satisfaction of building your own instrument.
This Build Your Own Guitar Kit includes a basswood body; a lightweight wood that is comfortable to hold whilst providing a full tone. The inclusion of a high quality wooden body ensures you can create a playable instrument that sounds great. Also provided with the kit is a maple neck, with poplar laminate fingerboard, for a smooth playing experience that is easy to learn and gig on.
The LA electric guitar DIY kit features single coil pickups. Single coil pickups are known for their bright, sharp and clear ring with the neck pickup producing a mellow but full twang and the bridge position giving you a clean, acoustic-like ring. When complete, this guitar is able to reproduce an authentic variety of classic sounds.
The pick up configuration also offers a crisp clear tone with good low end depth, punch and sustain that will separate your guitar from the crowd.
Customise To Your Own Style
This pack gives you a great opportunity to customise your guitar to your own design.
The body comes cut and sanded, but completely unfinished, so you can paint, stain, varnish or finish your guitar to any design you wish.
The Maple neck also comes with an unfinished headstock, so you can mark up and cut it to any design you would like, be it something completely original, or a tribute to an iconic instrument.
This kit does not include tools. Some tools will be needed, such as a soldering iron and a screwdriver.
A full list can be found in the instruction manual. (Gear4music.com Customer Service staff will not be able to provide detailed technical advice).
