DIY Acoustic Guitar Kit Resonator Build Your Own Guitar Kit

The FretWire

$ 220.00

Jazz style hollow body guitar kit.

Limited Run - only 5 Available

These kits are a bit different for us. If you've ever wanted a big old silver serving tray (or hubcap!) in the middle of your guitar, this is for you. Complete with all the resonator hardware. Why so expensive? All that chrome, brother! The chrome!

No electronics in this one. All acoustic vibrations.

This kit contains everything you need to build your guitar.  Just add your finish materials to the body and neck.  These kits aren’t just a collection of random parts- each neck has been custom fitted to the body to ensure a good, snug fit.  Includes a finished, predrilled body, fretted neck, and hardware. Wood is raw and unfinished, may require sanding and patching or other preparation prior to applying a finish.

Basic Instructions are included Kits are sold as complete kits only.
