Electro Guitar Kit
The Electric Guitar Kit from Tech Will Save Us is a quick and easy way for young makers to understand the parts of an electric guitar and how it works. It takes about 45 minutes to assemble using instructions from an accompanying app (best viewed on a tablet). The cardboard used for the kit itself won’t hold up to heavy use, but it does a fine job of demonstrating the basics of how amplification works. This kit is a solid jumping off point for musically inclined makers, who might even be able to take the electronic pickup and speaker and make their own instrument using other materials.
