Maple J 200 gibson studio style guitar kit


Here is a nice 1st quality Blues Creek Guitars guitar kit. It is based off a J 200. This is a new offering as so many kits are based off Martin we are starting a line of kits based off Gibson. The J 200 is a large body guitar .
The back and side are figured maple and the top is red spruce. The guitar while based off the J 200 is not to exact specs. The scale length of this is 25.4 and the fretboard and bridge are striped ebony. The guitar kit is complete so please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
The sides are bent and contoured for the J 200 shape. The top and back are thinned to spec. The rosette is based off a J 200 from the late 50's. I used the Grover Imperial tuners with this. No inlay is on the fretboard but I did include a set for the guitar. You may change that is you wish. The head stock veneer is included and is ebony. Bone nut and saddle are included, The nut width is 1 3/4 at the nut and 2 1/8 at the bridge.
The fretboard is radiused and slotted for you. I also set in the side dots. The binding I included is a black biding with a multi black white purfling.
The braces on this are more gibson shape The back braces are also done to the gibson style. The neck is a dovetail and the neck is maple and has the skunk stripe. There is a 2 way truss rod included.
We do have a building mold in stock for this item is you wish to order one. All parts are included down to the strings.

We do have full building support offered
