I want to start building guitars, would it be best to start with kits? I figured kits for the fact that I would then get the general idea of building.

Kits would be kinda starting in the middle.
You could do that.


copy/paste of my advice on another thread.
Use whatever fits your situation:


Yeah, here's a tip. Don't start with a build.


Start at the end...

Learn to do action / intonation.
Learn to do truss rod adjustment
Learn to do fret leveling/dressing/crowning/polishing
Learn to do hardware replacement / mods
Learn to refinish
Learn to assemble from pre-made neck and body
Learn to make your own body
Learn to make your own neck.

after you're good at simple-to-semi-difficult repairs, a kit would be a good starting point. Carvin's kits are a good quality, and are supposedly very easy to make.

I can do the basic repairs, I'll look at Carvins kits.

they're really nice, and somewhat customizable, and require no soldering if you're into that kind of thing
