I started learning the guitar about 18 months ago and had always wanted to build my own and as I already owned a Les Paul I thought I would go for the Stratocaster. I am so please I did and so please I came to Thomann. When my parcel arrived I was impressed on the way it was packaged, the product was well protected and the packaging was sturdy. I was not in when my kit arrived so was left with a neighbour so when I saw the massive dent in the box I was a little concerned about my purchase, however because of the packaging the product was in perfect condition.

Ok on to my actual review, I was pleasantly surprised when I began to open my purchase, the parts were of a very decent quality for the money, yes there is better out there, however for the money you pay for this item with Thomann there is no way you are going to get a better deal. The body of the guitar is already treated so take note that you HAVE to completely sand it down if you are colouring it, little tip for you I used cheap black ink and it worked an absolute treat. The pickups, tuners and strings etc are all very basic, however as previously said very decent for the money. The construction of the kit was as simple as simple could be, basically you bolt everything together and fit all the electrics, bridge, pickups etc. couldn't be more simple as all the electrics don't need any soldering as they are already done and all you have to do is clip them together and hey presto your guitar project is done.

One thing you will have to research on is the actual setup of a guitar because when I put my kit together the strings just laid flat on the guitar neck and could I get it right no I couldn't, well not until I went on the internet and researched about guitar setups. My action and general setup is now just fine, so don't worry if you come across the same issue, just go on the internet and research guitar setup for dummies and you will find all the info you need.

My kit made guitar is never going to be a Fender Strat it was a project for me that I am now very pleased with and you know what I can always look at it and say "I made that" Please ignore people who complain about pickups, strings or the quality of the wood on this kit, I seriously don't know what they want for this kind of money, a beginner / first timer will not be able to tell the difference, yes I can tell the difference now however this kit is well worth the money and was great fun doing it. If you ever fancied building a kit guitar I urge you to just go for it.

Hope my review helped oh and if you are learning the guitar I use acoustictuts.com one stop site for guitar tutorials.

My own design.

I really like the Statocaster body shape but did not want to build a Stratocaster! I carefully looked over the body to see what could be done. Mine came in 3 pieces of basswood, light yet resonant. Two parts had good grain match, the last piece was not- a solid finish it had to be. I sanded the cut contours to a deeper finish (forearm arm and rib-cage contours) and routed the pick up cavities to accept any pick up. I then decided to mount all the pu's at an angle, like the bridge pu.
I then designed a 3-piece mounting pick guard without the typically Fender jack socket plate to be a simple flat surface mount and rearranged the switch and control knob positions.
The headstock shape was next. After many drawings and a look on the net to see if I'd by accident copied any other design, I cut the profile. Also rounded the neck to headstock profile. Finished with amber tint cellulose it turned out very well. The maple even had some birdseye figuring! Frets polished and rosewood board oiled.
Now the hard and expensive part - how to finish the body? I went for midnight blue boat enamel thinned down and using a good brush...allright from a foot or more. Cellulose lacquer is expensive with additional postage charges and hard to get. It is also soft and on basswood will dent and scratch very easily.
The tremello bridge and tuners passed my 'fit for purpose' inspection and went on the guitar...stays in tune alright but both feel seem a little stiff when operating. Live with it. Pick ups are ceramic flat plate types under non magnetic polepieces and sound like an electric guitar! I am not a "tone" obsessive person. A magnetic field is just a magnetic field! In fact your strings are more important for a good tone. The magnets simply impart a weak magnetism within steel/nickel strings and then the strings vibrate...the moving field intersects the coil windings and that, folks, is the induced signal sent to the amp!
To conclude - I built the kit to look as different as a Strat could possibly be from parts that pass muster. The best thing is that the neck fitted the pocket nice and tight and the resulting combination resonates nicely with reasonable sustain and " twangy-ness"! Pleased by the result...
