SC DIY-KIT product image
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 SC DIY Kit has a classic single cut design made of solid wood that’s been given a base coat of wood filler; the 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!

"Building this guitar was very straightforward. The instructions came in both English and German (which is ideal as my native tongue is English but I live in Austria) and were easy to follow. All the holes were in the right places, all the components were there, and the wood was more interesting than I had expected for a guitar of this price."
