Kit-A-Day Giveaway – SAGA S-Style Guitar Kit

We’re giving away amazing kits from our new Make: Ultimate Kit Guide EVERY DAY — thousands of dollars worth of merchandise, including MakerBots!

To celebrate the release of our latest publication, the Make: Ultimate Kit Guide 2012 (and its companion website), we’re giving away at least one of the cool kits reviewed in the issue each day during the holiday season.

Today’s giveaway is for a SAGA S-Style Guitar Kit. Here web ninja Jake Spurlock’s review from the issue (he built the T-Style version):

Love to play the guitar, and want to add something custom to your kit? The Saga Electric Guitar Kit offers a blank canvas for guitar building. You could paint it, stain it, or classically distress it to look like your favorite guitar idol. In addition to the guitar body, the headstock has a paddle shape that lets you cut whatever design you want. All of the holes are drilled, and all connections are solderless. The barrier to custom guitar building has dropped, allowing anybody to own a personalized guitar.

To be eligible for today’s giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment below in this post. The entry period for today’s prize will be until 11:59pm PST tonight. We’ll choose one person at random, you’ll be notified by email, and you’ll have 48 hours to respond. The Winners List is kept on the Giveaway landing page. That’s it! No purchase necessary or anything else to do. Please leave only one comment per post. You can enter as many giveaways as you like until you win. This giveaway is for US residents only.

  1. It’s not a Makerbot but I’m still willing to win….  But if I win this that means that I can’t have a chance at Makerbot 5 of 5!

  2. I like to think of Jesus like with giant eagles wings, and singin’ lead vocals for Lynyrd Skynyrd with like an angel band and I’m in the front row and I’m hammered drunk!

  3. Hey, neat! I’ve wanted to learn how to build an instrument – ok, I’m not getting raw wood, cutting, sawing, grinding, etc, like a luthier friend of mine, but the idea is fine nonesoever. And is there a better way to ROCK!?!

  4. This would look great with blinkenlights recessed in the fret board indicating chord positions. Would an arduino fit behind the back cover plate?

  5. Dear Make Santa,

    I now understand that I’ve been too bad this year for you to give me a MakerBot.  I would have most likely used it for evil deeds anyway.  But an instrument to express my dishearten anguish would help heal the dark spot in my heart.  I’ve already composed a song for my first YouTube release, The MakerBot Blues.  Please slide down my chimney with this guitar kit.  I have a hot fire and some curdled milk waiting for you.

  6. Man I so want this. I’ve been looking at guitars lately because I am itching to try out that new game, Rocksmith. This would be the perfect way to get into the game.

  7. Dear Make people, none of these other posters really like you, they’re just pretending.  I do really like you and that’s why you should give me the guitar kit, to teach all these other people a lesson.

  8. This would be a fun kit to get. I used to work with a guy that would hand make amazing guitars and always wanted to try it myself.

  9. Ut et consectetur ipsum. In hac habitasse platea dictumst. Aenean rutrum, nunc eget feugiat feugiat, sem sem laoreet metus, a laoreet tortor enim non felis. Praesent lobortis mi dui. Suspendisse potenti. Nullam orci urna, consectetur vitae ultricies sit amet, rutrum vitae augue. Donec pellentesque diam in nisi auctor id aliquam magna imperdiet. Aliquam vehicula dolor a arcu sollicitudin non dapibus nibh fringilla. In magna enim, tincidunt et aliquet vel, venenatis vitae elit. Phasellus ac dui ac eros vulputate fermentum id id velit. Integer aliquam cursus fermentum. Nulla facilisi.

  10. Built a SAGA strat for my father-in-law a few years back. I strongly recommend drilling out the neck mounting holes in the body to get a better fit and better neck stability. It will save a LOT of tuning/intonation problems later on. Still, a fun project to do with my kids!
