SWAMP DIY Build Your Own Electric Guitar Kit - Telecaster Style
The world's first commercially successful solid body electric guitar, the Telecaster is a classic. Make your own with SWAMP's DIY kit, with all the necessary components such as a pre-wired, wooden body, a neck, and all hardware, screws and accessories.

The Guitar Body
The Telecaster guitar has been in continuous production since 1951, and many variations and producers exist. The Telecaster is a versatile guitar, usable for most styles of music and has been used in many genres, including country, reggae, rock, pop, folk, soul, blues, jazz, punk, metal, alternative, indie rock, and R&B. Solid basswood guitar bodies have a big, well-balanced tonality. There's a strong midrange, but also a certain softness and breathiness. On a well-made guitar, basswood can produce great dynamics and definition.

Full Kit with Electronics
The kit includes the body, neck, pickups, bridge, tailpiece, posts, machine heads (tuners), volume/tone knobs, cavity cover, truss rod cover, strap pins, pots, capacitors, switch, output jack, screws, sleeves, bolts, washers, insulated wire, solder, lead, starter strings, allen key.

Amazing kit guitar!

By: Otman Guitar on 27 January 2024
I bought this guitar as an experiment. I didn't want to spend a lot on a guitar and I want to see what I could get from a kit guitar. It took me a while to finish the guitar because I wasn't sure how I would design and shape the headstock.The headstock turned out to be easier than I thought. I cut out a rough shape and then sanded down the rest to the shape that I wanted. Turned out beautiful, as good as a bought one. The neck, the body and all the parts were good quality. The frets needed a bit of shaping to remove the sharp edges. Not a lot of work. I used left over house paint on the front face and then sanded it down, giving the guitar a white washed reliced look. The rest of the guitar, I used clear wax and chopping board board oil from IKEA. Gave it a light sanding. Gave a blonde natural look. When I finally connected up all the wires and plugged it in to my amp, I was impressed. No hum! The sound of the guitar sounded great! The output was a bit lower that the Artist guitars in my collection, the sound was plenty loud enough for practicing at home, which is what I do. Playability is good. The light body makes it very easy to play. If you want a kit that you want to use as a Parts caster or as a practice guitar, you can't go wrong with this kit.

Beautiful

I bought this for myself because I play guitar but I didn’t own one as a kid you don’t have a huge budget so this was perfect for me also because i wanted my colours on it. It is great fun to build and paint i am super happy with how it turned out except for three things (they are not this company’s fault) My shipping was delayed pretty badly and one of the earth wires isn’t connected properly and buzzes ever time i touch metal. The only problem they had was the wiring instructions were a bit hard to understand and the diagrams were a bit dated. I cannot wait to do some insane studf on the guitar. I recommend
