“I really appreciate the extra mile you guys are going to make sure your customers are satisfied. I have a degree in business and I've studied all that stuff about how companies are doing their best to keep their customer satisfied through marketing and incentives, but I can't think of another company (in any field) that makes me as satisfied as you guys do. I'm sure there are some places that sell materials here in Japan, but even with extra cost of shipping and customs fee, I prefer to buy from LMI, because I can trust LMI's service and quality of materials. No marketing and incentives can match the solid good service and I'm a very happy LMI customer.”

Our classical pre-carved DIY neck is produced by a well-known, high-end Spanish factory whose necks have gone on thousands of production instruments. This is not a finished neck, but rather a DIY (do-it-yourself) neck. We have done the hard stuff and you get to do the fun stuff. Purchasing a partially completed neck gives you the freedom to create your own peghead design, determine your nut width, and shape the neck and heel to your liking.

Here's what is done:

  • Peghead laminated
  • Peghead slots are routed and ramped
  • Spanish heel is roughly completed including the angled side slots
  • Tuner holes are drilled

Here's what you get to do:

  • Finish carve the neck and heel and add a heel cap
  • Create a peghead design and shape it
  • Sand and finish
