A few peeps have rightly commented on the problems that can arise when selling kits...
... However, from a logistic and cost point of view, selling kits would be, in the short to medium term, the best option for me.
That got me thinking and I may have come up with a fantabulous solution: What if I provided a list of recommended guitar techs that would be willing to assemble the Diaz Guitars kits for my customers?
I think it'd be a win-win-win situation for everybody involved.
From the customer's point of view:
- having their guitar professionally assembled and set up by a local guitar tech (more than can be said for the vast majority of off-the-peg guitars)
- I assume the tech would guarantee his/her work
- the added peace of mind that comes from dealing with a local (as opposed to internet-based) business
- the cost of the set-up would be offset by the lower price of a kit
From the tech's point of view:
- more business (hopefully)
- acquiring a certain familiarity with the kits, making their work easier and faster (I take the quality of the kits and their consistency as a given )
- having their services included in the "Diaz Guitars tech" directory
From my point of view:
- in the short-medium term, it is much simpler and easier to provide kits than fully-assembled guitars

Could we try and make this thread a list of recommended guitar techs?
I was thinking a very similar think yesterday although about amps. I picked up my amp yesterday and am extremely happy with the tech, 2nd time i've used him and thought it would be good if there was a way to recommend him to others.
It's not just me who thinks this guy is a bit good but some "bloke" called Dan Armstrong (hmmm, think he might know one or two things about gutars) who said - quote "Trevor understands Guitars like no other Guitar Man I have ever met."
So don't just take my word for it................
