What’s better than buying a new guitar? Building one. Black Beard’s Den puts the DIY back into our favourite hobbies and passions. Are you more of a builder than a buyer? Or, do you have a friend, boyfriend or sibling that absolutely loves music and DIY? Well, we’ve stumbled across a pretty awesome local online outlet that lets you order DIY kits for guitars for you to assemble in any way you want. It’s pure genius!

Blackbeard’s Den are the official South African distributor for one of the most prominent DIY guitar kits on the market. The company has successfully partnered with Custom Studio to allow full product customisation of the kits, so that dream of having a guitar with a giant flaming dragon shooting lasers out its eyes is now a reality.

You have the option to either purchase the kit as is and build it and spray it yourself, or give them an indication of what graphic you would like on the guitar. Custom Studio will then send you a mock up, and if you approve it, your guitar will arrive with your own personal and professionally air brushed graphic. All you have then to do is assemble it.

Over and above DIY guitars Black Beard’s Den also sells skateboard kits and other cool and unique items such as pick punches, Blackbeard watches, and solar jars. Visit their online store to see their entire range and shop now. Black Beard’s Den also deliver outside of South Africa. For South African residents registered SAPO mail is included in the price and courier is extra. Collections can also be arranged in the Johannesburg area.
