EvO:R Guitar Kits - Photo Gallery
Note: Some assembly required.
I've been really amazed at the workmanship I have seen by local guitar builders. They come to me for an inexpensive guitar kit
so they can build something special for themselves or for sale to someone else. A couple of these guitars are family projects.
Projects that find father and son working together and creating something they can both be proud of for many years.
Many of the pictures below have a larger viewing option by simply clicking the image. That way you
can study the work in greater detail. Be amazed like I am and enjoy this guitar kit gallery. I'll be adding
additional guitars every time someone sends me a finished product. With over 50 kits sold to date I expect to get plenty or additional photographs.

Built by people that purchased our guitar kits. What a collection of great looking guitars.
Charlie - here are a couple of pictures of the guitar I made from your PRS kit. I replaced the pickups and the control knobs.
The project turned out great. The guitar plays and sounds excellent. I am very satisfied with the result and am looking forward to another project
later this year."
"Thanks Charlie, for such a great quality guitar kit. It was a pleasure building from good material
rather than the run of the mill. Just made a few changes. Went with a better nut and better strings.
Also put better tuners on. Would recommend using Trans Tint wood die as the colors are much better
than any other dies I have used. Went with a pearl black sides and head stock and left the back natural.
This guitar came out great. Will have more pics with my customer playing it soon. Again, thanks very much."
I do custom leather work if anyone is looking for a custom guitar strap Can be reached at
The kit pictured below has EMG pickups. This was modified from the original kit we shipped.
This kit is shipped with 2 humbucker pickups made by Wilkerson. The builder replaced them with
his own personal choose of pickups. He also made some modifications to the pickguard and added an
additional volume control.
I'll bet this guitar screams!
EVOR founder Charlie Harrelson built this antique looking tele. He used a special trick to create the antique
pattern and put everything together from parts he had laying around. The guitar gets wired and set up soon.
"I purchased a kit to build a Les Paul style guitar from EVOR. I retired from the Navy a few months ago, and this is sort of a combination challenge and gift to myself. Having never really done any woodworking I had an
idea in my head of a patirotic Captain America Theme that I wanted to have on the guitar.
I loved the kit when it arrived. There were no instructions (other then a wiring diagram)
but I used the links on your site to find the info I needed to complete my assembly.
Thanks for having a Quality product, and lots of info on your site. I had a blast, and my
daughter even asked if she could help with the "Next one" that I build"
Ken Harkness AKA reactorgus
Cody Myers returned to America after servicing our country. He wanted to try his luck at building a couple guitars. He picked a Les Paul, JEM and a PRS kit and
went to work. We had a few trials and tribulations with the wiring diagram but once we got past that issue the rest was smooth sailing. Have a look at
Cody's latest projects and thank him for his service to the United States. I'm proud to say I know this man.
The JEM had a bolt on neck and already had the holes drilled for the neck, pickguard, and all other necessary parts.
I would recommend these kits for anybody who has the ambition and time to build their own guitar.
Ken Hallam built this great looking JEM. I asked him to tell everyone about his experience.
We want to be open and honest when publishing customer comments...
The routing on the body was a little rough but nothing I couldn't fix.
It would also be great if the truss rod cover was pearloid like the pickguard instead of
the black one that was supplied. This I changed, along with some better pickups and a switch.
The tremelo was not a licensed Floyd Rose tremelo, so I used one I already had.
Personally I don't mind putting some extra time and parts into a kit because you'll
end up with a better instrument in the end. I also shaved the neck a little thinner and
reshaped the heal to match the body.
On the plus side, it was nice to see all the holes drilled which makes this an easier kit
for a beginner. This guitar set up beautifully with nice low action, almost no neck relief,
no buzz and plays as good as anything I've played. Anyone putting these kits together would
pay to learn about fret dressing and setups as this will turn an average instrument into a
real players guitar.
I thought I would send you some photos of my first attempt at building one of your kits.
My wife bought it for me as an anniversary present. The artwork was done by the 14 year old daughter of a friend.
My wife searched for the best JEM kit that she could find and ordered it from your site.
I don't know if you sell many kits to the UK but you now have a very happy guitar builder
now here in Plymouth, England.
I am sure I will build another guitar, I am tempted by the opportunity of buiding a double
neck guitar. I have not seen any on your site and wonder if there is any likelihood of you
making a double neck kit? I hope you like what I have done with your JEM kit.
More photos to come from John very soon.
This is Cody's second guitar. I loved the name on the head stock.
Mac has been a regular at the Musicians Swap Meet in Mt. Dora. He purchased a tele f-hole body from me and created an instant classic.
This warlock was modified with EMG pickups to add maximum metal. The natural wood finish gives this guitar a nice look.
You typically see all black bodies with this style kit.
Wow, this is what happens when you put a guitar kit in the hands of a funiture craftsman. That f-hole was not part of the original body.
I've heard this one play and it sounds excellent.
The Amazing Flying M Guitar
Have a look at this amazing Flying V kit built by Todd Crotts.
Notice the center of the V has another body part making
this guitar a flying M guitar. I don't know if this is the first one built but
I must admit that I have never seen one before.
The guitar was painted with a metalic paint that had plenty of colored flacks
mixed with the paint. If you look closely at this instrument you can see the sparkles.
In keeping with Todd's tradition of going beyond the ordinary he also created a metalic/reflective
pick guard for an even cooler effect.
Todd has moved to California so he won't be building any more guitars for me. I will miss him!

Watch the Holton Family build a Dual Humbucker Tele Style kit purchased from EVOR.
Click the image to the left to follow the progress on Facebook. We are all very excited
about this. I check in every couple days! Thanks to Deborah for this great idea.
