I want to build something, I honestly don't care what it is.

Guitar, pedal, amp... pick? Something?

Anything. I was looking at all these crazy ebay build kits that have all the pre cut and pre made stuff, you just do the electronic and custom work. Do these have any quality and are they worth the price?

This is my first build of anything (besides skateboard ramps from back in the day, haha), so I need something easyish.

Thanks, Jason

i heard a guitar built from a kit like that

it sounded really bad

i felt bad for the guy who made it cause he spent like 10 hours on a custom paint job

You should get one of the cigar box guitar kits. They're about 50$ on ebay.

If you want a premade kit, build your own clone has some great pedal kits available.

[quote="'[BurnTheDusk"]']Boss pedals may be built like tanks but I would rather buy a cardboard box that is on my side than pay for a tank that is working against me.

You guys are awesome help! Any other places for pedal building? Just shopping around.


Also, if I paint my pedal, would acrylics work?

you can really paint those pedals with anything as long as you hit it with a clear coat afterwards. i've seen someone use nail polish on them before.

No. Don't get one of those kits. The frets are seated badly, the necks are ****, the bodies are crap, the electronics are terrible, and they are usually damaged in one way or another when they arrive. I have a friend who bought one.
I would suggest getting a stewmac kit or a kit from Grizzly.

Would this kit count? I see it's very inexpensive.=p The reason I'm asking is cause I have a little brother who would like to make/play guitar, himself.=]

could work for a younger kid, often the basic mechanics of playing are better learned on something that will provide a hefty challenge for your fingers, so that when he does decide to invest in his own guitar, it'll be a lot better, and easier to play.

we've already established that Saga kits are approximately 97% crap.

but they are buildable.

FOR THE MONEY no they are not, for building a nice guitar, I'll damn sure vouch that they suck, there's also a small time place that somebody mentioned in a thread, but the name escapes me.
