ST 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 ST DIY Kit has a classic single cut design and is made of solid wood that’s 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 648 mm. What’s really cool is that you can shape the headstock to suit your own personal style. Three ceramic single coil pickups produce all the lush, bright sounds you expect from guitar design. The chrome-coloured 2-point synchronised tremolo 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!

"Now, when you build the kit according to the manual, you should get a fully operational Stratocaster."

"I really love guitars and DIY hobbies, and this kit is just amazing! Be aware that if you want to stain the guitar you'll need a good 2/4 hours sanding time."
