This is a DIY Guitar Kit for an Acoustic Guitar based on a Standard Dreadnought with Cutaway
This is a semi processed kit, meaning that, most of the specialised and difficult tasks have been completed and a person with limited experience could complete the project. If you are not sure if you have the skills, shoot us an email or call and we can have a chat about it and the skills that are required in more detail. We also have heaps of resource material, third party links, books and instructions to help get you up to speed, plus we are available for guidance and advise along the way.
The “dovetail” neck/heel join is complete and the soundboard and back have the brace pattern set out for you to simply follow with the pre shaped/contoured braces.
These are the most complete professional luthier kits available and are superior to anything currently being offered anywhere in the world, and with the current state of the $AUD, why risk purchasing a luthier kit from the USA (plus international shipping, customs, fumigation, duty etc…) when our kits are better quality, more complete/easier to build, cheaper, and we are an Australian company that are here for your support – email, phone and/or skype.
We are really excited to now be offering this new batch of awesome professional luthier kits, however, it is a limited run, so, stock is limited….

Like all other Luthier Kits, this model does not come with step by step instructions. We can supply some handy reference material that will assist as well as phone/email support, however, if you’ve have no instrument building experience, we would strongly suggest first doing some research as well as purchasing a book on general lutherie to become familiar with the terminology and process’s required (we have a bookstore on the website). Its important to realise, this is not a simple “ikea style/flat pak” snap together project, you are building a professional musical instrument, so, expect to invest some time and effort into the project. In saying that, we have taken care of most of the specialised and really major stuff, so that folks can complete the project without needing to invest big bucks on specialised tooling and equipment.
We have a Instrument making Bookstore on our website as well as some free to view/download info.
