Gakken Mini Electric Guitar Kit – Some Assembly Required

By Andrew Liszewski

Is it a right of passage for every aspiring rock star to build their own electric guitar? If not it should be, even if it’s just this simple kit from Gakken that comes with everything you’ll need to build one, except for tools such as a Philips screwdriver and a pair of pliers. The results are almost like a scale model of a real electric guitar, though they essentially function the same way as you’ll learn during the assembly process. As for how it sounds, well, before you watch the video below just keep in mind the kit is available from the Japan Trend Shop for just $74, so don’t expect that much from it.
