Offset Trem Electric Guitar Kit

From crystal clear bends to crushing, fuzzed-out power chords, the offset guitar is always finding its way into the hands of innovative players. But this is no ordinary offset! We've taken the timeless design and upgraded it—now it's easy to unleash your custom version of this classic. 

From The Beach Boys to Sonic Youth, Nirvana, and Slipknot (and countless others), the offset guitar can do it all. Revered for its comfortable shape and endless mod-ability (just check out the mods by Kurt Cobain and Jim Root), there are few guitars that instantly feel at home in any musical style.

Boutique specs with a classic look
The original offsets looked amazing, but needed a few changes to really shine. We kept our favorite parts—the sleek and comfortable shape and the classic 25.5" scale length, then we hot-rodded it.

The first upgrade is the 6-screw tremolo bridge. Tried and true, it's got all the whammy you want and none of the tuning issues of the original tremolo. Next we added two full and fat sounding P-90s. With sparkling cleans and a thick overdriven tone this guitar can easily cover any tone or style. 

Finally we've simplified the controls to a 3-way toggle and a single volume and tone, no need to get lost with all the rollers and unusable controls!

First-time builder? No sweat.
You don't need a workshop to build this guitar—and there's a good chance you already own the tools you'll need. We've taken care of the tricky parts—the neck is fretted, the body is shaped, all you need to do is focus on the details and truly make it your own unique guitar. 

The neck is matched to each body for a solid connection and easy installation. The routing is clean and the bridge holes are drilled in the perfect location. With minimal prep you're ready to apply the finish. To make it even easier we've already wired the pickups and pots—just a few solder joints and you're done!

Not only that, this kit comes with our step-by-step, beginner-friendly instructions and our world class support—techs are standing by to answer any questions you have along the way.

Your kit includes everything you'll need:

  • Finely sanded mahogany body
  • Neck pocket, cavities, and bridge holes routed and drilled
  • Shaped maple neck with 2-way truss rod installed
  • 25.5" (647mm) scale length
  • Indian Laurel fingerboard with pre-installed frets and dot inlays
  • Peghead is ready for your personal custom shape
  • Pre-slotted nut
  • Chrome plated hardware—from sealed tuners to strap buttons
  • Strat-style 6-screw tremolo bridge
  • P-90 pickups in the neck and bridge position
  • Pre-wired pickups, pots, and caps
  • Traditional Strat-style knobs
  • Truss rod wrench

Want a shorter scale?
For another twist on the offset body, look no further than our Offset Hardtail Electric Guitar Kit. It's got a 24-9/16" scale and a fixed hardtail bridge. With both a humbucker and single coil it covers a ton of sonic ground.
