You’re a guitarist that likes DIY projects and you’re looking for your own custom instrument? Then check out our DIY kits! Playing a guitar for the first time that you’ve put together yourself is a very special experience. Our guitar construction kits give you everything you need to build your own custom instrument - at a startlingly low price. The body of the Harley Benton DC DIY Kit has a legendary double cut shape and is made of solid wood that’s already been given a base coat of wood filler; the tone wood used varies. The maple neck has a roseacer fretboard fitted with 22 frets, and the scale length is a traditional 628 mm. Stylish trapezoid inlays give the guitar a classy look. Two powerful humbucker pickups deliver an impressively full sound while the chrome-coloured Tune-O-Matic bridge and the die-cast tuners will match any finish you choose. One thing’s for sure: no other guitar will be quite as important to you as your own, personal ‘custom shop’ model!

"This was a bit of fun as never built a kit before. But turned out to be a VERY playable solid guitar!"

"I bought this kit on a whim and was quite staggered how good the fit and finish was when it arrived, I had expected it to be a little more than firewood with some metal and plastic bits thrown in! How wrong I was!"
