About the StewMac Body-Built Acoustic Guitar Kit

These kits come in the classic dreadnought shape, known for its impressive volume and articulate tone. 

Both models have a solid Sitka Spruce top that will only sound better with age. 

You can choose either solid or laminate back and sides. The solid wood model gives you a more nuanced tone, while the laminate model is easy to take on the road or out camping with no worries.

These kits also come with a laminate back and sides option, which is perfect for taking on the road or strumming around a campfire. The laminates are less effected by humidity and temperature change making your guitar a perfect travel companion.
