If you don't then buy a guitar that's all done and ready to go for about the same investment.
D. Aanenson
The body, neck and fretboard are all of high quality, and it comes prepped with sanding sealer; all you have to do is paint it.
MeesterZack
By the way you may have to do a little sanding in the neck slot in the body so the neck fits snug but not tight.

I purchased the Saga LC-10 LP guitar kit as a gift for my 11 year old son who expressed an interest in playing the guitar. After investigating the el cheapo guitar/amplifier combo packs I made the decision to purchase the Saga kit to hopefully provide something more robust than the low end guitars, and more importantly to teach my son all about the inner workings of a guitar.

This kit includes everything you need to start playing a guitar except for the amplifier. The downside is that the rats nest wiring harness which although easy to use provides lots of opportunities to generate electrical noise/buzz when connected to an amplifier. After doing some research I decided to start from scratch and upgrade the internal wiring, potentiometers, capacitors, and switches. I also purchased copper shielding which I installed in all of the cutouts and then grounded everything together. Although this effort added another $75-100 to the cost of the guitar it also made it much more enjoyable. I can crank the amplifier to the maximum and there is no buzzing or other noise from the guitar.

If you plan to add a colored lacquer finish as I did it will take several weeks before the guitar is ready to play because you need to allow the finish to dry between coats. If you are anxious to play you might want to consider a ready to go guitar.

Since I had no prior guitar experience I had to rely heavily on the many web resources dedicated to the building and setup of guitars. I even found one web site that had a much better set of instructions for building and more importantly setting up the guitar. In the end the information I gathered allowed me to use the basic Saga parts to build a guitar that is very functional, sounds and looks great, and gets lots of compliments from everybody who sees and hears it. My son is now happily making a lot of progress learning how to play the guitar using the books I ordered from Amazon.

First of all, 8th Street Music is extremely fast. I ordered this kit through Amazon.com, and the third party dealer was 8th Street Music. I ordered this thing on a Thursday morning, and it was on my doorstep Saturday! With regular shipping! There was absolutly no waiting to get started on this.

It was packed very well. Nothing broken or chipped, all the pieces were there, and the instructions were helpful and informative.

I really took my time painting it and cutting the headstock into a custom design. It took me a month to complete what with all the sanding, coating, resanding, extra color and clear coats, and polishing.

Now you can put this guitar together right out of the box in about 30 minutes to an hour and have a working guitar, but who wants a plain old natural wood guitar when you can go crazy and make it into whatever you want? The body and neck come sealed, so you do not have to prep the wood or even use primer. It is ready to paint right out of the box. You even get a cord for your input jack, and they throw in a set of strings too.

You don't have to be a world renowned luthier to put together your own guitar from Saga. You don't even have to solder the wires, they are all plug in. You can remove the plug caps and solder them if you wish though. After assembling this guitar, you will learn all about guitar electronics and set up. I had to adjust the truss rod just a little bit, but it played great after that with an awesome action. And hey guess what, they even throw in an alan wrench with the truss rod. You get everything you need in one little box. Buy yours today, build you rown guitar, and be a REAL guitar hero.

I ordered this kit from Amazon for something to do. It arrived in just a few days of the order. I did some internet research on this product, part fit, quality of parts, etc. I did a dry fit when I recieved it and found that the tuners were all for the same side. Also the wiring is not very good, try to re-soder some ends that you feel are questionable. If you want the wood grain to come out on the top of this guitar get out a grinder ! The sealer that they put on is about a 1/16 of an inch thick, if that stuff was paint I would have it on my car and never worry again about a rock chip ! Otherwise use Duplo-color automotive paint. The neck was a nice tight fit just like it should be. When you get this kit the neck will be tight, to install it lay the body down on a table or flat surface, line the neck up and push straight down. Since I needed new tuners and I had read to many times to count that SAGA is of no help I ordered my parts through Amazon. Gotoh tuners from Musicans Friend, Ernie Ball regular slinky's from Amazon, Graph Tech Tusq nut from Ant Hill Music, and all arrived in just a few days after order.
The neck had a little dip in it but it adjusted out just fine. The instructions are easy. I set it up the same as my Les Paul and to my surpise it sounds pretty damn good. So with the add on's my $215.00 kit guitar is worth about $375.00 and sound's like a $500.00 guitar. Have fun with it, it's a good product if you have some time and want to learn more about guitar building. If you don't then buy a guitar that's all done and ready to go for about the same investment.

I bought this kit for myself. I wanted the satisfaction of building and playing my own guitar. The price was well within my budget. I did upgrade the electronics, put on a Bigsby tailpiece, a new roller tune-o-matic bridge, and planet waves self trimming tuners. The items in the kit were fine to use, but i wanted a one off guitar, that would have the sound and the look I wanted.

The body was perfectly flat and the sanding sealer that was on it was great. I however in wanting a finish that was like a mirror used a enamel filler primer. The body was then shot with 6 coats of enamel black, wet sanded, and hung up to cure for 2 weeks. After curing the body was then shot over a matter of another couple of weeks with 10 coats of clear (remember that temperature and humidity have an effect on drying times.. I had forgotten this!).

After the final wet sand the guitar was polished with 3M rubbing compound and then a final polish with Maguires polish. The guitar is like a piece of black glass and the chrome hardware really stands out.

Have fun, take it slow, and then play!
