Building your own electric guitar can be very gratifying. Not only are you building a custom instrument to your specifications–it allows a better, and deeper understanding of the way the various components of a guitar work with one another.

This assembly guide is designed for everyone from a novice to a skilled woodworker. It gives you the knowledge and understanding of how to properly assemble and set-up your electric guitar or bass.

We recommend reading this entire guide before you begin your project. This way you will have a broader understanding of the specific order of assembly, finishing, and set-up.
