Mini T-Style Electric Guitar Kit

About This Item

Don't let the size fool you
This little rocker is a REAL guitar—and a really fun project you'll be playing for years. You can build it in a weekend!

Get ready for the most fun you've had building and playing in ages. This mini T-Style guitar is not a toy or a wall hanger, it's just like its big brother but with a shorter scale and tuned an octave above conventional tuning. You can play all the same chords and scales you know with a completely new tone.

A super-easy first build
If you've been looking for a simple project—this is the kit you need. Everything comes pre-routed, even the bridge location is already pre-drilled. Each neck is fit to each pocket for a super tight neck joint.

And, it's a one day build. Open the box in the morning and you'll be playing by afternoon. If you have a coffee table, you've got enough space to build this simple kit.

Huge tone in a small package
This guitar sounds and plays just like a full scale guitar. Everything from the nut width (1-5/8") to the electronics and hardware are the same size as traditional Tele-style guitars (other than the neck plate). While everything is perfect right out of the box, it's easy to make this guitar your own. From vintage vibe to crazy modern, you can customize this guitar exactly how you want.

  • Mahogany body, ready for final sanding and finishing
