    The Vo-96 Raw Guts Solid Starter - only for luthiers! This is a special deal only for the qualified luthier who wants to build an electric guitar or other instrument based on the Vo-96 Acoustic Synthesizer. This kit consists of only the essential circuit boards and wiring. The idea here is you design and build a custom instrument where the body of your instrument will provide the necessary enclosures and structures for the Vo-96 circuits. You also get direct phone consultation with Paul Vo, a video detailing important points you will need to know, and access to how-to information via our luthier's forum. Once you successfully complete one such instrument, you become one of our qualified luthiers - imagine the possibilities!
