Testimonials

"I’m about 10 tops into a stack of 40 cedar tops I got from you, and whenever I want to start a new guitar, I just walk over and pick a top off the stack, and start building.
They are all that great! I don’t have to dink around with the pattern, or select the “best" one: I just start building. I love that!  I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your high standards, and what a pleasure it is to do business with you!"

American Lutherie Reviews
LMI Guitar Kit
“If the guitar built from the

LMI kit was my only guitar
I would be quite content, . . .
it is probably the finest
acoustic guitar to come
out of my shop.”

Select and customize one of our acoustic guitar kits! 

With the LMI Custom Guitar Wizard you can purchase an acoustic guitar kit and, if you wish, you can modify the contents of your kit. All along, you are kept apprised of the kit's cost and your savings.

The Custom Guitar Wizard starts off with a list of materials and services from an acoustic guitar kit that you select. Then the Wizard lets you take items off the list and guides you to replace those items with similar items from virtually anywhere in our warehouse – all the while providing substantial “kit” savings!  You can also add many materials and services to the list in addition to those already in the kit.

  • If you’re a beginner, you can customize your guitar with the confidence that your selections will be appropriate and complete.
  • If you’re an experienced luthier, you can use the Kit Wizard to purchase fine tonewoods for one guitar, tuners for another, and a neck for a third at substantial savings.
  • If you're an International Customer, you can modify a kit so that we can ship it to you!  Instructions.
  • Best of all, you get a substantial discount on kit materials that come from the same stocks that have created LMI's reputation for quality among professional guitar makers.
