Our kits are are put together using high quality lumber, they do not come with instructions, but are designed to work with the literature we sell. We recommend Guitarmaking: Tradition to Technology by William Campiano and A Guitar Maker's Manual by Jim Williams. These books compliment our kits best and will help newer builders with clear instructions and good pictures. With patience, a good quality instrument can be produced.
To help you select a kit best for you we have developed a Skill Level Code system to rate our kits.
Skill Level 1: Very easy. 4-6 hours of work.
Skill Level 2: Moderate skill level. Not very hard to complete
Skill Level 3: These kits are ideal for the confident, intermediate builder.
Skill Level 4: These skills contain a few tasks that will require skill and attention to overcome those tough moments.
Skill Level 5: Challenging builds involving intricate work. Requires perseverance.
