Artist STDIY Do it Yourself Guitar Kit - AND DS120

By: on 11 May 2021
A strange series of events took me to the STDIY Guitar, and opened my eyes to the amazing musical instruments from Artist Guitars. My wife bought me an Artist DS120 Acoustic a few weeks ago on FaceBook Marketplace. I was so touched by her wonderful gesture, but I honestly wasn't expecting much as I had not really heard about Artist Guitars before. Well.....Oh my goodness......that DS120 blew me away, even with older strings......it sounded amazing and I could not believe how it has stayed in tune for 4 weeks now even with regular play and the central heating going on and off. I did not need to touch the tuning pins once ! My reaction caused my wife to then check your website, on which she happened on the STDIY, and promptly bought that for me too, without me knowing (crikey - how lucky am I to be married to you Sarah !!). I didn't know you could get kits of this quality here in Australia. Just received the kit last week and I almost fell off my chair when it arrived as I was not expecting it. I opened the box and was again amazed at the quality of the parts and for such an incredible price. Having watched a swag of glowing YT videos now reviewing Artist Guitars' quality instruments, I cannot wait to assemble it now ! Thanks Artist team for the best discovery in my musical journey for quite a few years :-) !! Alan

Amazing value and better than i expected

By: on 8 May 2021
I bought this and put it together yesterday. It's my first DIY kit ever. Unlike many people, i wanted to see what it would be like to throw it together with no modifications what so ever. No sanding / staining / painting / upgrading components / fret dressing. Well after assembly, it did need some general set up as would be expected (adjust truss rod / action / intonation) but after that it plays really nicely. I got the action really low and there are no dead notes or nasty buzzing anywhere. I can play lead up the entire length of the neck. To get this on a kit guitar, with no fret work at all is just amazing. I'm very happy with it and plan to get more!

I would like to thank Artist Guitar for this kit. I will be honest I have bee playing for a looong time and was Skeptical of the quality, Instead i was Completely gobsmacked. The quality was fantastic, Went together just as instructed, The neck is super clean and smooth. I also did a video review on facebook i was that stoked with the build. I highly recommend this kit to anyone, and in fact i will be buying these kits again. Extra Stoked !!

After already purchasing an Artist Grungemaster , I thought , why not give it a go on one of there DIY kits . The kit was delivered in a few days ( at a busy time ) and looked great out of the box . A few days spent sanding neck and body were well rewarded . I decided to go for a Tung oil finish and spent a few bucks on copper shielding tape to look after hum . All the hardware fitted to predrilled holes nicely . The only negative I can come up with is that the ground wire to the "claw" was hard to solder . Maybe a pre-soldered connection with a plug in ( like the input jack ) would work better . Over all it sounds pretty damn good !

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.
