    Newbie From The ACT

    Hi all!

    I have been playing guitar for roughly 20 years and have been doing sound production for about 8 years now. I have always admired the DIY attitude and have seen some incredible guitars made by people who enjoy doing it.

    So I have recently started playing around with the idea of building my own guitar and have discovered Pitbull Guitars and this forum through doing research. I haven't started yet as I am still deciding on what kit I want. I was planning on getting the MM-1Q kit as it was everything that I wanted in a guitar. The shape mostly but also the quilted maple top and of course the Floyd Rose Tremolo. But sadly it isn't on the website anymore.

    However, I am now thinking of doing a Strat type guitar that is white with black hardware, a black pickguard, dual humbucker and I still want a Floyd Rose. I know some people don't like them but I personally love them.

    I look forward to hearing from you all and keeping you all updated!

    Thanks,

    You can ask them for what you want through the custom shop section and they are pretty good at getting it made, it will take longer though

    I did see that and it is something I will consider in the future. However, I have settled for the STAF-1 as I can go with the white strat idea and I already have a Lo-Pro Licensed Floyd Rose I can use and a Seymour Duncan Distortion pickup set. Hopefully, it turns out as good as I think it will

    There's quite a few. There was some talk of a post-COVID coffee catch up...
