Custom Guitar Kits


Pit Bull Guitars offers a fully guaranteed Custom Order service, delivering unfinished guitar and bass kits with your specified modifications.

“What can I modify on the kits?”  Well, pretty much anything except the actual body shape.  If you are after a body shape for a model that is not currently in our catalogue, or you have your own design, I’m afraid we can’t help you.  This would require the factory setting up all new routing templates, which they would not do without an order for 100 or more kits.

So, if you like one of the kits in our range, but want to change something, here’s some of the specifications you can modify:

  • Body material: Basswood, Ash, Alder, Mahogany, Paulownia or Elm
  • Body routing: any configuration of pickups (single coil/humbucker/mini-humbucker/P90/JB, PB or bass humbucker), plus the controls and the control cavity routing to your preference.  You can even order a blank body, with no routing except for the neck pocket.
  • Bridge: rout the body for Strat(TM), Tele(TM)^, Tune-O-Matic(TM), Bigsby(TM), Floyd Rose(TM) style or any popular Bass bridge, or add your own by asking for no bridge routing. (^no routing required for Tele(TM) style bridge)
  • Body binding: single black, white or cream or triple (black/white/black) binding top and/or back.
  • Body (and headstock) veneer: choose from Flame, Quilted or Spalted Maple or Ash (please note: the veneers are very thin {0.6mm}, due purely to cost.  A true “maple cap” is cost prohibitive and not available from our factory.
  • Neck: 6, 7 or 12 string guitar, 4, 5 or 6 string bass.
  • Neck scale: 25.5″ or 24.75″ Guitar and 30″ or 34″ Bass scales available.
  • Neck material: Maple or Mahogany.
  • Neck join: set (glued in) or bolt on available on most models.
  • Neck binding: add white, cream or black binding.
  • Nut: Plastic (cream or black) or Locking nut.
  • Frets: choose your number of medium jumbo frets: you want 24?  you got ’em.
  • Inlays: dot, block, trapezoid, shark tooth or no inlays.  Sorry, we cannot supply custom inlays.
  • Headstock: blank “paddle” 6 inline or 3 a side headstocks, with or without tuner holes drilled.
  • Hardware: Chrome, Black or Gold hardware… or without any hardware.
  • Pickups: stock generic Chinese single coils, humbuckers, P-90’s, JB, PB or bass humbuckers available.  Or ask for no pickups so you can add your own.
  • More… if there’s something not mentioned above, please contact us to see if it can be done.

“How long will my Custom Order take to be delivered?”

We have two options for delivery; sea or air freight, with different pricing:

Option One: Sea Freight (delivery in 3-4 months).  This does not add to the cost of your order, and it includes Free Shipping within Australia (standard AU$59.95 shipping applies to International orders for one kit).

Option Two: EMS Air Freight (delivery in approximately 6 weeks*)  This quicker method adds AU$115-135 to the cost of the order, which covers the air freight shipping.  We will provide a fixed EMS Shipping charge with your quotation.

(*delivery time may vary, depending on the factory’s backlog of orders and the complexity of your order).

“How do I get a quote?”

Simply email us with a detailed list of your modifications and which Country you live in.  We will then reply (usually within a few hours) with a fixed price for the kit and shipping.

If you are happy with the price, then just reply with your full delivery address and mobile number (for tracking the item) and we will send you a PayPal invoice* for your order.  When the invoice has been paid we will order with the Factory. (*Australian customers: Bank Transfer [direct deposit] option available on request).

You will receive a tracking number when the order has been shipped.

Best of all! Our Pit Bull Guitars 100% Rock Solid Guarantee applies to all Custom Orders.  If you are not 100% happy with the item you receive, please contact us within 30 days of receiving your kit and we will arrange a return and refund, or other fair offer if you prefer to keep the kit as received.

International customers (outside of Australia) please note: if you choose to return your custom order, you will need to cover the return shipping cost, which we will refund to you, along with the total cost of your order, when we receive the returned item.
