Testimonials

Just wanted to say that the quality of all the products LMI has sent me is awesome!

I was shocked at the outstanding quality of the wood sent with my kit. All the wood in my kit is stunning! I can't wait to work on this project.  The quality of the services is top notch and the tools I bought from LMI are top grade.

I am glad LMI sets a high standard in quality all around. I look forward to this project and many more knowing that a place like LMI exists with these standards.

I work in a manufacturing environment so I know the work it takes to keep such a high standard. I know LMI couldn't do it without having good people doing the daily grind. Please let your co-workers and shop staff know that I said thanks for the work they do.

I hope LMI continues this tradition of high quality, it can be hard to find a place that values a high standard.

Great job
and thanks!

SKU: PL29

by Scott Antes

PLANSteelStringSmallConcert6stringPL29at850copyrightThe plan on this page answers the call to those requesting a plan for a smaller guitar. Drawn by Scott Antes, a mechanical engineer by training, with a long history of instrument building, his experience and expertise are well illustrated in these fine plans.

If you are ordering our pre-carved, slot-head neck to use in conjunction with the PL29 parlor guitar plan, please be aware of the following: The PL29 plan features a guitar with 24.5" scale and the pre-carved neck that we offer is a 24.9" scale neck. As on the old Martin O shaped guitars, many of the small sized guitars being made today (Goodall, Santa Cruz, Charles Hoffman) use a longer scale length. Doing so locates the bridge nearer the center of the soundboard, thus "sweetening" the sound. Be sure that you place the bridge (and bridge plate) according to the 24.9" scale length on your guitar and not according the placement shown on the plan!

See Acrylic guitar template for this plan.
