After much consideration, I have decided to close DIY Guitars and sell out all remaining stock at bargain prices. If you have ever wanted to get a great DIY kit for a bargain price, jump into the shop now. Prices will be drastically reduced on most items over the coming days. There are some conditions as explained in the last paragraph.
I have a little 5 year old rocker in the family named Charlie. Last year, he was diagnosed with leukaemia and although he has a good chance of surviving, the toll the treatment takes on both him and the rest of our family is enormous. We had great plans for expanding the business last year, but I didn’t have the time or energy to make this happen. Treatment gets easier, but this coming year and the years to follow are also going to be tough. This presents two problems; I need more time to spend with the family and I have high standards when it comes to running a business. I have been unable to achieve either and as family comes first, the business has to go.
DIY Guitars has some value, so why not sell it? Well, despite a bumper year, much more work is necessary to make the business attractive to a buyer. I would much rather see our hard work passed on to someone else and watch the business grow from a distance, but for all sorts of reasons, this is not practical in our situation.
Thanks to those who supported us.
Closing Down Sale Terms and Conditions
- No Returns (except as required by law)
- Community Support Only – if you have a question about your kit, ask it in the forum. You might receive a response from other guitar builders, but not from us. The forum will continue to operate for a time I have yet to decide. Please consider before buying if you have the necessary skills to build your chosen kit.
- No Bonus Pack – the extra strings and things will not be supplied, however these might be available separately in our shop.
- We will only be fulfilling orders twice a week, so delivery times may be longer than normal.
