Are you more of a builder than a buyer? Well, we’ve stumbled across a pretty awesome local online outlet that lets you order DIY kits for guitars and retro skateboards for you to assemble in any way you want.
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 it and build it and spray it yourself, or give us 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.
The online store not only deals with guitars though, as you also have the opportunity to order retro skateboard kits from Impi Skateboards. These retro 22 Inch (56cm) skateboards are small, hip, versatile, fully customisable and durable.
Every piece comes in a variety of different colours allowing you to make a board that matches your personality.
You’ll have to order a deck, two trucks, four wheels, and an optional griptape to have the pieces you’ll need for your board, and Black Beard’s Den will throw in a free Bag, T-Tool and Stickers at no extra charge.
Over and above DIY guitars and skateboard kits, Black Beard’s Den also sells other cool and unique items such as pick punches, Blackbeard watches, and solar jars.
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.
