Mercantile International, Inc. (LMI) has an outstanding line of guitar kits
and accessories. They offer basic and deluxe versions for both the
beginner and the more experienced woodworker.
According to this kit maker, "These kits, with the major parts fully
serviced/machined, make it possible for someone without a full complement of
wood working tools and specialized guitar making tools to make a fine acoustic
guitar at a professional level."
BEST PLANS FOR BUILDING Guitars ARE HERE!
From the LMI website: "The blank head of the pre-carved neck is large enough to
accommodate a wide range of designs. Rather than supply all top and back braces
100% sized and pre-shaped (as found in other kits), we have chosen to supply
sufficient bracewood billets to shape and size these critical pieces to your own
specs. This way you will have some control or influence on the final design of
the top and back bracing systems."
Luthiers Mercantile International, Inc. is located in Healdsburg, CA.
Kits range from about $290 to $498 plus shipping.

My order for a Classic guitar kit and various guitar–making woods and materials
arrived today. I’m just writing to say how pleased I am with the quality of the
items, the thoughtful packing and the promptness of the delivery. I now
understand how you can offer your outrageously bold “Returns” policy! Although I
did have rather high hopes, I think your firm has exceeded them, and your staff
should be commended. Thanks for a great first-time shopping experience. I look
forward to a long and productive continuing relationship.
I'd first like to tell you that your service is
phenomenal; my orders arrive in about a week sometimes less,
Thanks for all of your help in answering my
questions these past few days. I placed an online order this morning, and am
looking forward to receiving it. You guys definitely have a wider selection,
more services, and better prices than the current supplier that I've been buying
from, so I'm sure I'll be doing a lot more business with you in the future.
Thanks again, and have a great day!
