Here is a DIY guitar kit that uses the iconic Les Paul as its base.

The Saga LC-10 features a single-cutaway body crafted from basswood that's pre-routed for easy assembly.

The top of the body has a flamed maple veneer to give it a more premium appeal, especially when paired with transparent or semi-transparent finishes.

The neck is crafted from maple and already has a rosewood fingerboard. The headstock follows a default boxy shape, but it can be re-shaped to your preferred style.

All essential components for assembly come with the package, including two humbucker pickups, tuners, bridge and tailpiece, as well as all internal electronic components, knobs and pickup switch.

Features:

  • Building Difficulty: 6/10
  • Body: Single-cutaway Semi-Hollow Les Paul Style
  • Tonewood: Solid Basswood
  • Neck: Solid Maple
  • Fingerboard: Rosewood
  • Pickups: HH (Two Humbuckers)
  • Controls: 2 Tone, 2 Volume, 3-Way Pickup Selector

Pros
Ease of build is a recurring theme among reviews, with many saying that building this guitar is a fun experience. Still the most commended feature of the Saga LC-10 is its value for money. There are also plenty of positive comments regarding wood quality.

Cons
While others find it fun to build, there are some who have the exact opposite experience. There are a few complaints about the neck joint and fingerboard roughness.

Overall
If you're looking for an easy to build electric guitar kit, then check out the Saga LC-10.
