What you see is what you get
This is no ordinary kit, this limited edition WoodStax kit uses our highest grade hand-selected premium tone woods. We combined a AAAA Grade Madagascar Rosewood (Dalbergia baronii) set and the lightest and stiffest AAA Red Spruce (Picea rubens) top so you can create a truly one of a kind guitar.
We've photographed each set individually—what you see pictured in the first image is the actual wood you'll receive. Zoom in and check out every grainline, every detail, and every inch of your unique back, sides, and top and start building your dream guitar.
You dont't need a big shop
Perfect for beginners or pros alike, if you don't have all the specialized tools you need to thin tops or bend sides, or you want a head start that will save you hours of build time, all of the critical work is done so you can start and finish this build with ease. When you open the box, you're ready to build. These complicated steps are done for you:
Madagascar Rosewood bears a striking resemblance to Brazilian Rosewood in both color and tone, with deep shades of brown, red, and purple, and Adirondack Red Spruce has been treasured by builders for its powerful projection and warmth for generations. These woods pair beautifully to create a sound that is dynamic, with clear, thunderous bass response and a vibrant high end that never gets lost.
- Carving the neck
- Bookmatching the soundboard and back
- Cutting the soundhole and routing the rosette channel
- Accurately bending the sides
The woods and materials are comparable to a $5000 factory-made instrument, but without your personal touches. With this top quality kit, it's never been easier to start your building journey.
But wait, it gets even better...
