“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.”

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.”

LMI’s Acoustic Guitar Kits and the Custom Guitar Wizard

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 Custom Guitar 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.
