Grizzly Telecaster Kits –  yeah that’s me in all my glory there, after I put together my son’s Tele Kit we bought from Grizzly.

The standard kit is 129.00, and I have to say, pretty cool for the cash.  A lot of the pre-cut parts are just a hair off, but for an old guitar hacker like me, it’s okay, I like the challenge of making it work.

Remember in the back of your tune driven mind, you are making a 500.00 plus guitar for a fraction of the cost. It only takes minor tweaking, but you need the tools to do it, it’s not a paint by numbers thing.  You will feel like you are really building a guitar.  The instruction book is very helpful, if you can get past the man thing, and read the directions.  Don’t be afraid to think outside the box on this one.

The last kit that I bought, yeah, I forked out more to buy another one, gotta make mine better than the Gentle Giant that lives upstairs, it had a lot of flaws, something to really sink your teeth in.  A thinking man’s kit.

I had to shave the neck to fit, the pick guard needed some tweaking, the input jack hole not the right size, a hackers dream so to say,  where your creative juices find no bounds, stop bitching just dooo-it.  It’s your guitar, make it what you want to is how I approached it.

The string through bridge mount bridge is very cool, the pick ups are okay.  Add some magnets and walla, mega tele – Grizzly, call me, I’d be glad to help!

Don’t be afraid of this value, it will bring out the best in you, great kit for the thinking man.  They sell an abundance of tools to help on your quest to be a “guitar making god”
