i don’t see why you couldn’t use your own top with a kit. but, you’ll only want something that is quartersawn with tight growth rings and good tonal properties.

when i built mine, i made everything on it except the tuners and bridge pins. i even cut my own saddle and nut from a piece of bone. maybe it’s just me, but i felt like if i was going to put that much work into it, i wanted it to be my personal piece. i wanted it to be MY guitar, not a kit guitar.
