saga kit buildFrom YouTuber John Morton comes this Saga kit build video of his TC-10 Telecaster. The Saga TC-10 Electric Guitar Kit has easy to follow instructions and is a great first project with just a few simple tools. This is possible because the kit comes complete with all the hard parts done. For example, all the shaping and the routing of the body and neck are complete with the kit as delivered. All holes are pre-drilled and the electronics are complete and ready for installation with no soldering required. All the kit builder needs to do is choose the color scheme, assemble the parts and play.

Here is the Saga kit build video, with more details on the kit below:

    I’ve built one Saga kit, and found it 100% enjoyable. I’m a little older and smarter now, back then I didn’t know jack about guitar building. Fortunately it came with very simple, easy to read and understand instructions (which were downright educational, as well.) Sure, the components aren’t in the same league as the expensive professional stuff, but delivered perfectly good, usable sound. And the holes were all correct!!! This is often a “crap shoot” when building kit guitars, I had one BYO Strat where absolutely NONE of the holes were right. My Saga ran about a hundred bucks (dirt-cheap, these days) and I don’t think they’ve increased by all that much (but haven’t looked, to be honest.) My only gripe was that the truss rod was broken, something I didn’t notice for about two years. The electrics are all done for ya, and use connectors rather than having to solder ‘em — a feature the purists will moan about, but which a non-solderer like me could really appreciate. Would I recommend Saga, and build another? YES.
