TheFretWire DIY Electric Guitar Kit TFW010 - Double Cut (Discontinued)
TheFretWire has quite the lineup of DIY electric guitar kits, covering many of the most popular guitar styles and configurations.
The TFW010 in particular lets you build your own double cutaway style dual humbucker guitar, and it comes complete with all the wood, electronics and hardware that you need.
The double cutaway body is crafted from mahogany and comes pre-drilled for easy assembly. Like most DIY kits, it comes unfinished so you can apply which ever you prefer.
The body is paired with maple neck which is topped by a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard.
Also included are essential electronics including two humbuckers, two volume knobs, two tone knobs, and a 3-way pickup selector.

Owners commend the quality of the wood used and are pleased at how well aligned the drilled holes are. This in turn makes the overall experience of building easier. It also gets a lot of positive comments that point to its neck and fingerboard. The distinct shape of the body also makes it a good project guitar that doesn't look too familiar. Finally, those who built it as-is are pleased with the resulting sound and overall appearance.
Some caution against too much sanding because the veneer grain on the body is thin. Swapping out the pickups gave much better results for a few users.
