Robert O'Brien International Steel String Course Kit Wizard - price determined by choices

$0.00

THIS KIT IS CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION AND CAN'T BE ORDERED YET.

These kits are designed specifically for international students taking Robert O'Brien's online building courses. Since CITES/regulated material can't be shipped internationally, we have built these kits with materials that can be exported. As with the other O'Brien kits, there are more required items than most Kit Wizard choices so we can ensure you have all the materials you need to complete the course.

  • Backstrip, Ebony w/Maple lam (ref: BTAE1)

    Backstrips can add a nice decorative element to any instrument. They can help tie a binding scheme together, break up a back with a less than perfect bookmatch or just add beauty to your guitar. We carry bindings, purflings, and woodstrips to complete your desired color/pattern scheme.

    The laminate on this backstrip measures approx. .035 on either side. 

    If you would like us to inlay your backstrip, start by ordering your back and side set and you will be offered this customization there.

  • West African Ebony fingerboard, 1st grade, steel string/electric (ref: FBAE1EL)

    West African Ebony has been a standard fingerboard wood for factory guitars in Europe and America, and for many builders, it is preferred because it is easier to plane and is more stable than other Ebonies. It is rarely pure-black, but the streaks and mottling that are indicative of West African Ebony are now largely accepted in the marketplace.

  • Binding, Rocklite Ebano w/Lime lam

    Wood binding serves to protect the corners of the instrument as well as seal the end grain of the soundboard and back. Many of our bindings have matching backstrips.

    Rocklite® is a revolutionary and totally environmentally friendly approach to tonewoods for musical instruments. It looks and sounds like real ebony, and is very black unlike most ebony available today. It is an engineered composite produced from eco-friendly, readily available wood species. LMI has done loads of testing on this material and it performs well. It cuts, routs and sands easily and is black all the way through. If you're looking for a super-black alternate to ebony, Rocklite is for you!

  • Purfling, BWB 20/20/20

    Anything on the edge of an instrument that isn't the outermost edge (binding) is called "purfling".

    Fiber veneer is very flexible and no bending is needed prior to installation. Wood veneer may need to be bent to avoid breakage depending on the shape of the instrument you are building and the number of laminates in the layup. One can sometimes us a simple household iron to bend these to the appropriate shape. These laminates should not be soaked.

  • Khaya neck blank, 1st grade, 35" x 3" x 7/8" (ref: NKKH1353)

    A 35" neck generally allows you to produce your neck and heel from the same stock which prevents issues with color/grain mismatch.

    Khaya has often been overlooked as a substitute for Mahogany. Though it is an attractive wood, the wide pores, lighter weight and pinkish color we usually see in this species clearly distinguish it from "the real thing". We have found that there are different strains of Khaya which look nearly identical to Honduran Mahogany - or at least present themselves as the best substitute we have come across so far! 

    First grade necks & heels are straight-grained, quartersawn with a 25° variance off quarter allowed.

    African Sapele features an attractive ribbon figure than runs the direction of the grain. It is an excellent alternative to Honduran Mahogany, with similar color, and above average stability. It is a little heavier than Honduran Mahogany and the texture is not quite as even.

Choose 3.

  • Sitka Spruce bracewood, 1st grade

    Bracewood is becoming harder to get as wood, in general, becomes scarcer. Mills are attempting to get the highest yields possible from their logs and/or billets meaning that there is less fall down from which to create bracewood. As a result, the quality of bracewood suffers – it won’t be perfectly quartersawn, the grain may not be straight the full length of the piece, there may be small defects and the grain could be wider than one is accustomed to. This is an industry-wide phenomenon and is outside of our control.

    Unless otherwise noted, each bracewood unit is equivalent to 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" x 20", though the actual dimensions of the pieces you get may vary. On rare occasions, 2 units may be delivered in one double-size blank.

Robbie has chosen the LMI double action rod.

  • Truss rod, double action welded, 14 1/2" x 3/8" (overall length 15 1/2") (ref: TRSD)

    Protected by U.S. Patent No. 6,259,008, this is the best rod on the market in our humble opinions. The square stock bears against the bottom of the fingerboard, so no filler strip is necessary. Turn the nut one way and the rod bows one direction, turn the nut the other way, the rod bows the other direction! With this rod, the nut is actually welded onto the adjusting rod which has been right-hand threaded on one end and reverse threaded the other. The bottom, round rod is covered with heat-shrink tubing to protect against rod buzz. This rod requires a slot 1/4" wide x 3/8" deep. The bar-stock dimensions and the round-stock OD with the heat-shrink tubing are the same and that makes for easy installation.

Robbie likes to include binding tape and glue in his kit. 

Choose 1of each. 

You can't add more than 2 quantities

  • Binding tape, .680" wide (ref: FT75)

    Almost all factories and hand makers in our experience use tape to hold the bindings and purflings in place while gluing them to the edge of the body. Regular masking tape is generally too weak and tears under the pressure needed to press the bindings and purflings firmly into the routed channels. Filament tape—plenty strong enough—must be cut to length with scissors or a knife and is expensive. The tape of choice is this binding tape, our FT75, made from stiff paper with strong rubber based adhesive. It is strong enough to apply sufficient pressure with a strong adhesive yet can be torn by hand as you work. Each roll should do at least 5 or 6 guitars.

  • Build a Steel String Guitar, Robbie O’Brien (ref: BM62)

    by Robbie O’Brien

    We were surprised and delighted when luthier Robert O’Brien, who at that time was an instructor at Colorado’s Red Rocks Community College, informed us that he had been having his students order our kits and that he was making an instructional DVD based on them. Building from LMI kits, O’Brien thoughtfully chose to use a slideshow format creating more than 1400 photos and 3 ½ hours of audio for each DVD, rather than a video format. This enables him to document every step of the building process on a single, affordable DVD disc

This enables him to document every step of the building process on a single, affordable DVD disc. He creates this classical DVD in the school's well-equipped shop using common power tools, and he gives suggestions on how most of the operations can be completed with hand tools.

    LMI's aprons are made from 100% polyester satin cloth making them a bit shiny and super easy to clean. They have lots of pockets for stashing critical stuff that is typically lost on the bench. The two large front pockets are flapped to prevent wood dust and chips from accumulating in the bottom of your pocket. The straps are made from wide adjustable nylon that criss-crosses in the back for ultimate comfort. The XL size fits a pretty "full sized" guy or gal. For reference, our employee Ian is wearing a medium sized apron in the photo. Aprons are embellished with an embroidered gold LMI logo and lettering. Machine washable (We recommend line drying).

Robert O'Brien International Steel String Course Kit Wizard - price determined by choices

THIS KIT IS CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION AND CAN'T BE ORDERED YET.

These kits are designed specifically for international students taking Robert O'Brien's online building courses. Since CITES/regulated material can't be shipped internationally, we have built these kits with materials that can be exported. As with the other O'Brien kits, there are more required items than most Kit Wizard choices so we can ensure you have all the materials you need to complete the course.
