My first build - A great experienceBy: Brendan Richards on 5 February 2021This was my first guitar build - and with the help of countless you-tube videos I'm really happy with the result. Won't be my last! All the crucially important steps lined up and worked perfectly: fitting the neck to the body, truss rod adjustment, ,bridge saddles. I've now got a guitar with better sustain and tuning stability than my shop-bought Gretch! The mostly flat TC style body makes it a great choice for your first attempt at a guitar finish.
TCDIYBy: sam caserta on 18 January 2021This is my third kit from Artist and the value for money & efficiency of despatch & packaging have been excellent. I haven't completely assembled this TCDIY kit yet. The frets are nice & even with smooth edges & the neck needed only a minor tweak to the truss rod. The raw wood grain looks great with only a fine sand before clear finishing ? or painting ? All in all, an excellent buy !
Great value TC DIY Guitar by SamBy: Sam on 17 January 2021This is the second Artist guitar kit (Telecaster style) I have purchased ( & the cheapest). The kit came well packaged-nothing damaged. I haven't assembled it yet but the neck/frets doesn't need any fettling-just a tiny truss rod adjustment. The raw body,which has a nice grain, will need only some fine sanding before painting or clear finishing. If the electronics are as good as my previous purchase ( a Les Paul style) , I'll be a happy man. When it's assembled & running I'll see if it needs any upgrade
