TheFretWire DIY Guitar kits supply you with everything you need to build the guitar you have always wanted.  Finish the body and the neck, add the hardware, and start rocking on a guitar you built yourself.

This isn’t just a collection of parts.  Each neck has been custom fitted to the body in the factory, guaranteed to have a nice tight fit. This DIY ST kit makes a great project.

John K. - February 17, 2020

The veneer had some glue saturating through. The neck didn’t quite seat properly, there was a bit of clearance/wiggle. The nut action is super high so it definitely needs to get filed down. The frets definitely need some filing/polishing. They did offer to replace the kit, so that’s great. But it’s kind of a hassle to have to do that, and who knows if the next one would be any better? It’s not a terrible kit, you just get what you pay for, so be aware of that.
