Now you can build a 60s classic
From legendary designer Trev Wilkinson, these are some of the highest quality electric guitar kits available today. With three single coils, two cutaways, and one trem, what else do you need?
If you want to build a guitar inspired by the Strats of the 60s, this is the kit for you. Wilkinson supercharged this kit with the best of everything. With top quality woods, professional-grade pickups, and amazing craftsmanship, your new favorite guitar is within your grasp. Now you can build your own with a few simple tools.
Make it play like a dreamThe heart of the kit is the premium grain-matched center joined 2-piece body. The routing is crisp and clean, and the wood is smooth and ready to finish. With our series of ColorTone Lacquers and Finishes, you can make it look exactly like you've always pictured it.
This kit oozes vintage vibe and tone, and the parts and electronics are completely upgraded from top to bottom.
The Maple neck right out of the box feels smooth and fits tight in the pocket. It's pre-fretted, inlayed, and ready of fine tune to your perfect shape. The profile is nearly identical to the iconic 60s models that we all love. The peghead has a very familiar shape—it's ready for you to customize and dial in the exact curves and contours to match any vintage model you feel inspired by.
Custom pickups and pro parts
Each and every electronic component is totally upgraded. Wilkinson's custom-wound WVS pickups are hooked up with premium wiring and professional-grade CTS pots and CRL switch. These vintage-voiced Alnico V pickups have captured the soul and tone of 50s and 60s Strats perfectly. The pickguard is completely pre-wired, saving you hours of work.
Vintage hardware with modern playability
The hardware upgrades are where this kit really shines. The bridge is Wilkinson's take on the classic Strat trem, with traditional bent steel saddles. The bridge baseplate features elongated holes so the screws won't bind, for smooth, accurate return to pitch. The steel block also features staggered holes for an incredible feel. The Graph Tech nut keeps the guitar in tune even when you lean into the trem.
