We call this one the Slab. Visionary builders can see their guitar hiding in this monolith. Others just see a chunk of wood. This is an Advanced kit. You will need to cut the shape of your body. The dimension of the body is 17" x 13".

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 predrilled body, fretted neck, all electronics and hardware. Wood is raw and unfinished, may require sanding and patching or other preparation prior to applying a finish.

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