made by Rick Thum).
The 12/11 kit comes unassembled and requires gluing, clamping and some drilling for assembly. It makes a 2 1/2 octave instrument (starts on G below middle C, goes up 2 1/2 octaves in note range). It has the soundboard, back, pin blocks, all the hardware (tuning pins, smooth pins for putting on the looped end of the string), completed bridges, hammers, a tuning wrench and individually-looped strings. Usually has circle soundholes that are precut. Comes with Complete assembly instructions.
The kit has 2 strings per course.
Need to: glue frame together, then glue soundboard and back to the frame. Then need to drill holes for the tuning pins and stationary pins (there is a drilling template to follow). Need to do final sanding, applying lacquer, install pins, and install strings.
The bridges are made already, which saves a lot of time.
