STDIY Guitar

By: on 12 September 2020
All of the dealings that I have had with ARTIST guitars so far have been excellent. When my DIY turned up, I was pleasantly surprised to unpack a quality product in it's raw form. The packaging was very good and the body, neck and accessories were all very well protected. I can't wait to get this project under way and have a guitar that I can build and set up to suit my style of playing. Value for money is the best that I have seen and I would not hesitate to recommend this buy to any one who likes to make a project their own. I would like to build a 12 string guitar one day to go with all my other guitars. I will undertake this project at a slow pace so that the mistakes made will be minimalised. Thankyou. ARTIST guitars.

Very happy with this purchase. It arrived promptly and well packaged. I consider this to be excellent value for money. On a quick run through everything fits the way you would expect, also fret ends are perfect, just a quick oil and all good to go. Can’t wait to get it painted and finished off. A brilliant project for anyone who is looking to add another facet to their hobby.

Unreal value & great introduction to guitar assemb

By: on 1 May 2020
Hey Artist Guitars - just letting you know I received this DIY Strat today and assembled it in around an hour - no experience at all... Firstly a couple of issues - trying to fit the jack socket plate i must have forced too hard and the red wire came away - quick trip to Bunnings to buy a solder iron & solder and try my hand at soldering fixed that minor problem - second issue was the jack plate has to be re-adjusted to allow a guitar lead to fit - once that was done - Honky Dory all good! Great sounding strat - great great investment @ $129. I'm going to buy another so that my son can dress it in the colour he wants and learn how to assemble and play his own guitar! Possibilities are endless - eyeing off the $199 LP next for me. Keep up the great work guys! CJ

Great kit guitar

By: on 16 April 2020
I decided to undertake this kit guitar project while in CV19 lockdown. I was pleasantly surprised when the kit arrived because of the careful way it had been packaged. A significant quality level above other kits from other suppliers. I took my time working on the finish. There was virtually no sanding required on the body or the neck. Even the frets were well dressed and no sharp fret ends. I used a quality timber finishing oil on both neck and body to bring out the grain pattern. I left the neck oiled and applied my own decal on the headstock before applying a water based polyester clear to the face of the headstock and to the body. I applied more shielding to the pickup cavities and pickguard to ensure that RF interference was minimised. Before fitting the pick guard I needed to do a little work on the wiring as the pickup wiring was too long and needed to be neatened and shortened, an easy job for those who know how to solder. I also checked the impedance of the pickups and found then to have the low impedance of vintage single coils so I anticipated nice clear tones from them. Assembly was easy and the setup needed adjustment of the neck relief after the strings were fitted. An intonation adjustment, pickup height adjustment and string height adjustment and it was done. Plugged in to my Fender Deluxe Reverb this guitar sounds very nice. The clarity of the pickups has not disappointed. In all I am very pleased with the outcome of a very useable and gigable instrument. My only suggestion that would improve this kit would be the fitment of slightly taller frets because the small frets leave no room for future fret dressing as the frets wear from regular playing.

DIY guitars for grand kids

By: on 17 February 2020
I have made 6 of these Guitar,s They are affordable well made, not many things you can buy that will exceed your expectations, " BUT THESE DO" great timber and when set up sound great, Makes the time you spent worthwhile, when you see their faces of our Grand children, when you give them something you have stained etc and all have a great guitar that has different wood grain an stains, Made real personal with a brass plaque on them with" their name" on it 3 more to do, then they all will have some thing that's not made of plastic, they can play for years of enjoyment or pass on to their children Regards John
