Do you know someone who dreams of building their own guitar but will never get around to it? If you're struggling to think of a Christmas present for them – or if you just like the idea of building one of the coolest guitars known to man – then we have one of Cyber Monday's most fun deals: the Lego Ideas Fender Stratocaster Kit, now 20% off at Amazon.
The detail is incredible, with six strings, tuning pegs that actually work, three faux single-coils and a whammy bar-equipped tremolo system. Not only that, but it comes with a Lego Princeton Reverb, with two inputs, tubes and even a reverb tank. It's a thing of beauty and a great collectible for any Strat player.
Lego Fender Stratocaster:
$119.99, now $95.99
Looking for a fun guitar project that doesn’t involve soldering or dismantling your favourite guitar? Well, why not take a stab at the Lego Fender Stratocaster kit? This Lego set is super fun and incredibly accessible and with 20% off at Amazon, you really can’t go wrong.
It's a fun gift, it's a cool collectible to have in your house, and the attention to detail is incredible, from the guitar strap to the knobs on the amp. And you get to choose between a red or black finish. Building it is a great way to unwind (second only to actually playing guitar, of course).
