DIY Stratocaster Kit

Quality DIY Stratocaster Kit

Here at RH Factor Guitars it is our goal to help other guitar builders, whether a weekend hobbyists or "guitar makers to the stars" get the best parts at the best prices. For years I have been frustrated by the service and prices offered to the small builder.  Ordering parts from dozens of vendors is costly and takes valuable time - time that I would rather spend making guitars, my first love.   Even MORE frustrating is trying to ensure a great fit between necks, bodies, tuners, bridges and pickguards.  Different manufacturers use so many specifications, sometimes even small items like screws can talk weeks of frustration to find.  I knew there had to be a better way...." 

Are you frustrated with searching all over the web for the best parts?  Never fear, I've done it for you.  I have finished and built dozens of guitars with these parts that have sold to local musicians for over a thousand dollars!  Whether you are looking to build your own "dream" axe, or are a professional or semi-professional luthier let us take the hassle out of your parts search!  Shipping each of these parts from a dozen or so vendors would cost more than a hundred bucks in shipping costs alone!  I have save you that money already!

Born from this desire to get the BEST value parts in the business with the best fit, finish and tone, I am now very proud to offer the RH Factor S-type guitar kits to you.  I check every KIT, not just every part to ensure you get the best neck/body joint fit.  Ask any pro luthier and they will tell you this is the "soul of the instrument".
