TE 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 TE DIY Kit 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. Two ceramic single coil pickups will give the characteristic twang you expect from this legendary guitar shape. The chrome-coloured bridge and the die-cast tuners are a perfect match for 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!

"I ordered this kit because I have recently became interested in guitar diy kits, I enjoy the whole process of finishing and setting up a guitar right from the beginning and have good experiences with Thomman (sic!) in the past."

"The kit arrived well boxed up and contained every part required and you'd be surprised what goes missing in some other kits! This one from Thomann was excellent."
