Hi, I am very tempted by the guitar kits on themusicking.co.uk, especially the Telecater style one, and i was wondering, what are the best relatively cheap humbucker pickups that i could fit to this when i build it?
I play rock, grunge and nu-metal music, the body is made of basswood and the neck maple, can anyone help?
I was also wondering what would be the best Tremolo to fit to it would be? again, relatively inexpensive,
thanks

don't buy kits ever even a guy who works at guitar center agrees with me on this the guitars and amps in them are always not as good as the seperate ones

When you say trem, are you planning on going with a Bigsby or some other surface mount trem? If not a lot of work would be involved to route it out for the trem that imo is not worth it. Adding humbuckers is pretty easy though, as you can do it with a Dremel and some patience and a new bridge. which given the bridge that comes with it looks like crap, it wouldn't be a bad idea...

EDIT: I also agree those kit guitars can be hit or miss and the parts on them are generally junk.

what you want to do will require alot of routig to be done, the best recomendation would be to look for a king v or strat kit which should not require any routing to be done

Did you even look at the thing?

It's a unassembled guitar, that you buy and put together.

exactly, nothing that comes with it will actually be put on, just the body and maybe pickguard will be used

That's right, a Guitar Center employee said so, so it must be true!

When it comes to the humbuckers, you will probably have to do a bit of cutting to make them fit. If you want cheap ones that don't sound absolutely horrible then it might be worth it to check out some Seymour Duncan "Duncan Designed" humbuckers. My first guitar had a pair of HB-102 and they sounded pretty nice.
