That way, you can create really nice colorful or even psychedelic color patterns. With a little bit of time and preparation, you will create a unique guitar on your own.

Technical equipment

The guitars are equipped in traditional ST and T-style: Three single coil pickups with a five-way blade, two tone and one volume potis on the ST models; two single coils, three-way-blade, one tone and one volume poti on the TL model. The electronics are completely pre-installed, you don’t have to install anything. Simply place the pickguards on to the pre-drilled holes. Only the open cables have to be soldered, no problem with a little practice.

Good guitars, as individual as you

Ultimately, the DIMAVERY DIY ST-10, ST-20, and TL-10 guitars are very good instruments. The wutong body, maple neck, and rosewood fretboard make the ST-10 very lightweight and give it a clear sound. The basswood body of the ST-20 and TL-10 gives them a smooth and versatile sound with nice mids. The DIY guitar construction kits are perfectly suited for beginners and ambitious tinkerers who always had wanted to build and design their very own guitar.
