Choose your back and side set. 

Many dreadnought guitars are built using East Indian Rosewood. If you're concerned about exporting your guitar without paperwork hassles, choose an exportable wood instead. 

The set you choose is the set you get but until you check out and pay for it, the set is still available for sale to other customers.

Bookmatched back and side set includes two bookmatched back pieces and 2 bookmatched sides.

We can bend sides to either a standard dreadnought based on our PL48 dreadnought plan or a cutaway dreadnought based on our PL48C cutaway dreadnought plan. The sides are sanded to approximately .090" and rough tapered from 4.5" at the upper bout to 5" at the lower bout. Don't make a choice if you plan on doing this yourself. We recommend to new builders that they have us bend their sides the first time around.

We are not able to do a Florentine cutaway.

If you have elected to have us join your back, you may also wish to have us profile it. We will profile your back to a dreadnought shape leaving approximately 1/4 inch of extra material beyond the outline. This excess material can be removed later, once your box is complete, using a router with a flush trim bit or by other appropriate means.

READ!!! You must enter a scale length here or we will not be able to process your order!

**You must have selected a fingerboard to use this service.

**If you choose to have your fingerboard slotted, you must make a selection in the remaining fingerboard customizations as well. If you do not make choices, we will choose the following for you: Slot Depth - .095", Nut Slot Position - Standard Nut Slot Position, Nut Slot Offset - 1/8" behind the nut. 

Enter a scale length between 8" and 40". Use the fingerboard calculator in the LMI Help Center to be sure your choices will fit on the board you chose. We recommend a 25.4" scale length.

To convert mm to inches, divide the mm by a factor of 25.4. Ex: 660mm divided by 25.4 equals  25.98" inches. 

**If you choose to have your fingerboard slotted, you must make a selection in the remaining fingerboard customizations as well.

Enter the number of fret slots desired (not including the nut slot). A typical number of slots on a dreadnought guitar is 20 slots.

**If you choose to have your fingerboard slotted, you must make a selection in the remaining fingerboard customizations as well.

Nut Position - Choose either the Standard or Zero Fret nut position option. The Standard nut slot moves the kerf back half the width of the slot. Our slots are .024”, so we move it back .012”. This puts the string’s breakaway point (the edge of the nut) at “true zero”. The Zero Fret option places the nut slot so that it is centered at the zero point of the scale. This works for those who install a zero fret – a fret at the nut position (with the actual nut getting placed just behind it to position the string spacing and guide the strings towards the tuning machines). Some players like a guitar with a zero fret as it helps eliminate the tonal differences between fretted and unfretted notes.

Choose the nut slot offset. There will be this much wood left behind the nut position. 1/4" is pretty typical. Those building a Fender style guitar will want to choose an inch, so there is wood to taper into the headstock.

Fingerboard positions markers for the side and face of the fingerboard. Mother-of-pearl or plastic pearloid markers are pretty traditional. We recommend 2mm for the side dots and 6.35 for the fingerboard face. Remember that shell can't be exported (due to extra paperwork and fees), so choose plastic and/or stone alternatives if you live outside the United States .

Wood or plastic that protects the end grain of the back or top. Depending on the length of the product you will need 1 or 2 for the top, another 1 or 2 for the back and 1 or 2 for the fingerboard (normally left unbound). There should be enough remaining for an end graft if desired.

Rosewood is a pretty standard choice here but cannot be exported outside the United States. Indian Ebony is also popular. Rocklite Ebano is a great sustainable choice and is very black.

  • Binding, BWB 30/30/30, ABS

    Plastic makes a good binding/purfling due to its resiliency and ease in bending. You can rip the laminated bindings to use as purfling. Although our plastic binding is cut as cleanly as possible, it might be necessary to run the binding strips over a file (in a vice) prior to installation to further smooth out the edge.

Purfling goes between the binding and the top or back and provides contrast and beauty.  Depending on the length of the product you will need 1 or 2 for the top and 1 or 2 for the back. There should be enough remaining for an end graft if desired. You will find wood strips here as well.

The longer 64" purflings are easy as there is no joint required at the butt of the guitar.

  • Purfling, BW 10/10

    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.

Tell us how many pieces of your purfling you want to have bent to a dreadnought shape based on the PL48/48C plans. If you choose a cutaway shape, we will bend half the pieces to a cutaway and half to a non-cutaway.

Price shown is per piece of purfling bent.

Some purflings don't need to be bent. If this is the case with your purflings, we will remove this cost from your kit.

  • Honduran Mahogany bolt-on carved neck, diamond volute, long scale, deep heel (ref: NKHMBDHLS)

    All our pre-carved Honduran Mahogany necks are CNC (computer numerically controlled) routed from quartersawn wood ensuring accuracy and consistency. Compare the machining to the necks of our competitors, it's far superior!  The oversized peghead allows the builders to customize their peghead thickness and shape. The peghead on all this neck has industry standard glued wings on the peghead that are virtually invisible. The neck is pre-drilled and the inserts installed for the bolt-on neck attachment. Use a steel string 14 1/2" truss rod with this neck. The diamond volute (pictured) is decorative, but also adds a bit of mass at a structurally weaker point on the neck. It can be filed off you prefer.

    West African Ebony has been a standard 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.

Clear selection

The reinforcement plate that goes under the bridge helping to stabilize the bridge and prevent strings from damaging the soundboard. The BPRW Indian Rosewood bridge is a good choice here but can not be exported, so if you live outside the United States choose Maple instead. Some also believe Maple is less likely to split over time.
