    O.K....I have a desire to put together my own guitar, but I don't own woodworking tools...Then a bad at PD points me toward a guitar building kit on ebay...Anyone have experience with these things? Do you end up with a decent axe? Will I have to tweak it big time to get decent sounds? Let me know...Thanks, dudes!!

    Dude I'm not a guitar player, but I like to dick around with them. Try out Warmoth guitars. They have many ready built kits and what have ya. The REAL guitar players here will most surely help you out. Just trying to help somewhat. Out.

    Although Warmoth are undisputably the best, if you want a cheap alternitive to a build-youself guitar go to http://www.carvin.com and check out the "guitar kits" catigory. They offer a full kit for around $400 I think but there are extra options you can get. Its all there too - all the wood, electronics including pickups, and hardware. You can get them with either 3 single coils or 2 singles and a humbucker. You can get a tremolo option with sperzel tuners. Basically there are heaps of options and the best part is the only think you have to do is finish the body in what ever finish you want (the natural tung oil looks awesome apparently) and bolt it all together. If I lived in the states I would've gotten one of these long ago!
