Hey, I have been thinking about buying a Saga Kit guitar of eBay, there around the £90 mark, but then again, i could buy the parts of a guitar cheap off of eBay.
a Prewired scratchplate+pickups
Body
Jack Plate
neck plate
Neck
back plate
screws bolts etc
bridge

you know, all the stuff you need.
I am wanting to make a stratocaster.
bytheway, please dont say, buy a squire strat and sand it etc.

EDIT: http://www.themusicking.co.uk/build-your-own-guitar-kit-s-style-right-or-left-handed

Is what im looking at

i would recommed going with the saga kit ull be certain u have everything u need (partwise) and u wont get stung on all the seperate shippigng costs
then using the money u saved u can buy new tuners and pups cause ive heard taht the ones that come with the saga ones are a bit on the crap side
good luck man

^ No.

Saga kits have notoriously terrible quality.

Go with parts off of eBay, just get a good neck. That really is one of the most important parts of every guitar.

^ There ya go! .

A saga kit with a good neck is as good a place as any to start. In time, you'll end up replacing everything but the body, so I just say go for the good stuff right away.

Avoid guitar fetish though, they have terrible stuff.

Ah right thankyou, yes i hear the saga kit necks are a bit shabby.
I think i might get a maple neck on a strat, cos i always think maples are better on strats, opinions?
