About eight years ago I met a young man through my hardware shop, his name is Jay Parmar, and he is a brilliant guitarist. He helped to turn what has always been a love of mine into a passion. I grew up in Glasgow in the late 50’s early 60’s and the opportunity to learn to play an instrument was very limited, as I grew older it was always a regret of mine, as I love music.

Meeting Jay changed all of that, he persuaded me that it didn’t matter how old, you can always learn something new. With Jay’s patient teaching I now play the guitar and now I spend many a happy hour on an evening doing just that, and it’s a great way to relax.

Ever looking for ways to continue expanding my interests and owning a hardware shop gave me the ability to talk to people, and I discovered that many of my customers also play guitar. The feedback I got from them was that a build your own guitar kit would be a project that they would relish. See our gallery of Finished Kits


Jay helps me in the business on technical questions. He will also be available to help with guitar/build-related questions and will also be providing a guitar kit customizing service at some point in the future. Jay is a professional guitarist, is a guitar teacher, runs his own recording studio and builds his own guitars. You can find out more about Jay at:www.jayparmar.com

We hope you get a great deal of pleasure from our build your own guitar kits

Thank You Rodger
