I want to express my deepest gratitude to the team at LMII.  When I started making guitars 26 years ago, my first guitar was made from wood that I ordered from the LMI catalog (there was no internet back then). Since then, the team at LMI has been nothing short of excellent!  The products and services are second to none.  My only regret is that I waited 26 years to say...THANK 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.”

Answer your kit questions.

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.
