    Advice on which kit

    Hi Everyone,
    New to this. I play a bit of electro-acoustic guitar (folk + pop strumming) and do some woodwork as a hobby, so thought I would build my own guitar from a kit. I fancy a hollow body or semi hollow type and would like it to look really good as well as sound nice. Any suggestions on which kit might suit me best.

    Hi and welcome.

    I'll suggest looking through DarkMark's builds for possible kit choice, might be close to what you have in mind.

    In his signature there are links to all his builds.

    Also have a read of Adam's announcement about PBG just so you know what's happening.

    Whichever kit you choose, enjoy and start a build diary.

    Hi and welcome vicsing.

    There are only a few PB hollow body guitar left in the store at the moment.
    I agree with neverwas, check out some builds and the Photo Galleries. Hopefully something will grab your attention. Or, like me with my first build (a bass) go for something that is completely different. Good luck.
    PitBull Builds: FVB-4, LP-1SS, FBM-1, AG-2, TB-4, SSCM-1, TLA-1, TL-1TB, STA-1HT, DSCM-1 Truckster, ST-1, STA-1, MBM-1.

    Scratch Builds: Pine Explorer, Axe Bass, Mr Scary, Scratchy Tele's.

    The little voices in my head keep telling me "build more guitars"

    Hi, welcome
    If you are into folk, probably a Tele type or Hollowbody Tele is your best choice for the tones and type of Music you play. It's easier to build as well l as it has a bolt on neck, than a regular Es335 or Starcaster Hollowbody which are higher in build difficulty level as well.

    Pitbull guitars are closing on 31 October. So u may need to act fast and Pick up what ever is available as soon as possible.

    Happy building

    Thanks Grant. Had a look at Darkmarks and impressed. Just sent for a ES-1F as a friend sent me a picture of his.

    Thanks Trevor. Decided to get in quick before they all go and ordered a ES-1F. Looking forward to getting to grips with it!

    Went with an ES-1F as it looked awsome. Will post a diary.
