In the Maker Shed: Guitar, mandolin and banjo kits

Building a custom guitar, mandolin, or banjo has never been easier thanks to the popular Saga guitar kits from the Maker Shed! All the contours, critical angles, and pre-finishing work has been completed, eliminating any guess work, and the possibility of making an unplayable instrument. The kits are designed and crafted so that no sophisticated woodworking tools, complicated jigs, or soldering are required. Detailed instructions are included to make the process simple. Hack it and make it your own!

  1. I built a guitar, and all was pretty simple, except for building the neck. Will a neck or other parts be up for purchase separate from a full kit?

  2. No, sorry. Only the complete kits are available. (and you can see in the pics the necks are 95% done,making it really easy!)

The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.

Launched originally as a source for back issues of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Shed expanded rapidly to meet the demand for 'projects in a box,' otherwise known as kits. Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .
