T-Style Electric Guitar Kit

About This Item

Welcome to guitar building!
If you're new to guitar building this kit's a great way to start: this is the classic electric guitar design that's fun to build, and you'll learn a lot.

The mahogany body and smooth neck are higher quality than other kits at this price. The parts fit perfectly, and with our instructions this is an easy build that makes a great guitar — and a great gift!

We've included a great set of illustrated instructions that'll take you step-by-step through the whole process from: creating a custom peghead, installing and aligning the neck, wiring the pickups, applying a finish, installing hardware and even doing a final setup on your custom guitar.

And, if that weren't enough, we're also including an extra set of Dunlop Guitar strings to make your guitar sound amazing.

Whether it's your first or your 50th, this is an affordable way to build a great guitar.

    Kit includes:
  • An upgraded mahogany body pre-routed and drilled for the proper placement of the neck, pickups, control cavity and bridge
  • A pre-fretted maple neck with blank peghead and pre-installed 2-way truss rod
  • Pre-installed fingerboard inlays
  • Slotted nut
  • Sealed tuners
  • Neck and bridge pickups
  • A wired switch plate for easy installation
  • Output jack
  • Classic Tele-style bridge and chrome hardware
  • 2 sets of strings
  • Setup adjustment wrenches
  • An output cord

Incredible!!!

By

Verified Buyer


I built the StewMac T-Style Electric Guitar Kit with my daughter Sophia May (6). She picked the color (Sonic Blue) & we worked on it over a couple months (mostly waiting for the lacquer to cure). We upgraded the pickups (Golden Age), tuners (Grover locking) & bridge (Fender) - an important note is that the pickup cavities & bridge holes may need to be modified if you are using upgraded parts. I am in complete awe of how this guitar feels, plays & sounds - it is better than my Fender American Professional Telecaster in every way!

A really sweet guitar - especially when you consider the cost...

Verified Buyer


I'm loving this guitar... I drilled the holes through the body and got the ferrules from Stew-Mac. I added new saddles to the bridge and I already had a set of Planet Wave Locking Auto-trim tuners in black hardware, so a little paint on black hardware and they fit right into the theme... The back and sides of both the body and the neck and Colonial Maple stain (orangish)... the top of the headstock and body are Rustic Orange... I got my wife to make me images and letters with her Cricut machine and they are covered with 6 layers of lacquer... I'm extremely pleased with the quality and playability of this kit... I'll have to build a Strat next... Stew Mac rocks...

Tung Simple

Keep it simple my friend. Tung Oil, some stain and some "elbow grease" is all you need.
I always wanted a "Tele"...
This kit has become one of my favorite guitars to play. It looks good, it sounds good, and it makes me feel good when I play it. This is a great kit for a great price. Maybe upgrade the tuners and the bridge....maybe someday...

This guitar came out perfect! I used Fender Texas Special pick-ups with 500K pots & was VERY articulate while building. The tone of this guitar kicks ass! I play it thru a Fender Twin clean with slight reverb. Blues only...the tone is immaculate! Pics to follow...

Not started yet!

By

Verified Buyer


All I can say is that the kit came to me, in the UK, in a very fast time and, it seems, in good order. I had a look at the neck and body, and they look very good indeed, but at this point no more than that. I have to finish decorating my front room and build shelves before I can even start on my new T-kit. My biggest problem is how to finish the neck and body. I have yet to make a decision!!! But I am so excited to start this project!!

Rare bargain!

This is my second kit! These kits are priced right, fun, easy to make, look way more expensive when completed and have exceeded my playability and tone expectations.

Good kit so far

By

Verified Buyer


Just getting started on assembly, but so far the neck and body were a good fit and the quality of the wood is really good. The fret job and dressing it top quality. Haven’t had a chance to test the electronics yet.

Great price on a good kit

By

Verified Buyer


This is my second StewMac guitar kit. Both are Tele-types. This one seems to have some problems with the neck, along the edge. Someone got a little too aggressive with the sander, it appears. I haven't had time to get it into the shop and evaluate, but I'm sure it can be saved, but it will require more work than the first kit, which is now my favorite guitar, and the one I play the most, so I'm expecting similar results with this kit. As the subject says, though: great price with the sale.

Everything included was in proper and correct condition. No issues what so ever with this build. For an amateur it's a good start.
