DIY "Platinum" ST Style Electric Guitar Kit
Read the full title DIY "Platinum" ST Style Electric Guitar Kit
Materials: rosewood, alder, maple
Solid body six string electric guitar kit with beautiful alder body, maple neck, and upgraded locking tuners, bridge and pickups. This is a fantastic quality, easy to build, dual single-coil 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.
Every hole is drilled for each component, including neck, bridge, pickguard and strap button mounting holes. No soldering is required; all electronics connect together with easy to attach connectors. We have done most of the hard work for you! The body needs finish sanding only but should require no filling.
The guitar kit comes with chrome hardware, an upgraded tremolo bridge, a white 3-ply pickguard, three single coil pickups, and all necessary hardware. A set of Fender strings is even included.
This is not a cheap Chinese manufactured kit of questionable quality where the parts simply don’t work together (like most of the other 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.

4 shop reviews1 out of 5 stars
I bought this for my wife's 49th birthday. From the moment she opened the box, to now when she is just about done with finishing the wood body, and ready to move on to the neck and then assembly, she has been ecstatic about the kit. More times than I can count--and I am not exaggerating or making this up--she has told me it's the best gift she's EVER received in her life. Anyone who loves a guitar player will win rave reviews gifting on of these kits. It allows someone to have fun, enjoy a means to understanding how guitars are put together, and the creative options for finishing are fun and endless. A few Youtube videos helped her refine her finishing approach, but the kit tells you everything you need to know. One of my best ever Etsy purchases!!
Have not received this item.
Great quality kit made in USA!
Never received this item. Never returned voicemails, never responded to emails. Had to fight for my credit card to be refunded. Finally Etsy stepped in to help. Do not order anything from Alloy Guitars!
