poptartpower Posted August 5, 2010 Report Share Posted August 5, 2010 Howdy, hi, hello! It's my first post here on the forum. I am interested in getting a low cost guitar kit like what is being sold on BYOguitar.com. In particular, I am interested in something like a Les Paul or Explorer replica. The kits seem to run for $180 to $190 depending on who is selling them. What is the current opinion on these kits? Are they complete garbage or is there something to them? I know it is possible to get a whole new guitar for $99 and lower, especially if shopping used. That was me 15 years ago. I had a chance to play everything from a real Explorer to a 69 Strat to a Jackson Dinky. It's been a whole since I played and I think that getting a kit would be a fun way to get back into the instrument. I'm not looking to recreate the experiences of before. Just looking for something fun to assemble, finish, and noodle around with. I got some search results when looking for info about the Saga kits but the posts were from a few years back. It seems like the kits are more hit than miss. Ideally, I would like to have a guitar kit without the PUs and hardware. I know I would upgrade whatever the kit came with. Any thoughts? -- Boris Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
