Congrats to those in this tread who built some nice looking guitars from kits. Some very fine examples there. I've seen some in person that were terrible and some that were done well. It's all about having fun. Just don't buy a kit thinking that you are saving money on a nice hand made guitar. It's more like when you were a kid and you used to buy those model airplanes and ships and glue them all together and paint them up.

For anyone considering getting into luthiery as a hobby I guess starting off with a kit is a good thing to do. I tend to steer people like that away from kits and instead just diving right in and start making mistakes.

But the kits are fun and in the end even if it looks like a disaster you have a guitar.
