Got a one during the lockdown love it, had fun putting it together. Sounds great in my opinion and looks great with a Jarrah stain

Great kits

I've built two of these kits now and have no complaints. They came well packaged and everything fits together great. With a bit of care you can really finish these guitars off well so they look and feel much better than they should for the price. I'm ready for my next kit now and will look at upgrading the electronics and hardware.

I wanted to learn more about how guitars worked, what went into them and I was eager to do a craft project in lockdown, what a way to do it! I’ve learnt a lot about painting, and how a guitar goes together. I’m very happy with my purchase and how the guitar sounds and performs A1 customer service and delivery as always. Highly recommend!

DIY kit for ST

By: on 21 September 2021
This is my first DIY guitar kit. Delivery was so fast. Body and hardware were complete, no missing parts. I have been preparing for this kit. I watched a lot of videos on guitar body stains, polishing and hardware assembly. This kit was just perfect. I love the construction of the fretboard and fret wires. In the final assembly, I had to make a tiny adjustment at the neck to align with the bridge. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase. You can't go wrong with the price. My finished product is a walnut stratocaster. I'm planning to buy another DIY kit in the future, maybe the LP flametop version and color it ocean blue.

Great kit

Got this as a present from my son. Great guitar and super easy to build. Went a bit overboard and painted with Nitrocellulose metallic (lake placid blue), lot of effort but worth it in the end. Also bought a loaded pickguard from Seymour Duncan. But these kits by themselves are such great value, would highly recommend. Have learnt so much by putting together, will now be able to setup my own guitars in the future. Well done Artist guitars
