A hands-on course in guitar making.
We include full-size plans drawn by Don MacRostie, who designed our kits based on prized vintage Martins. The kits are adapted for the small shop so you won't need factory tools. We do the precision machine work, so you can hand build a great guitar.

We include illustrated assembly instructions and a FREE DVD, Building an Acoustic Guitar Kit! This DVD demonstrates the process in a way that would take a book to fully describe — and you can see what you'll be doing before you do it yourself. No other instrument kits give you this level of instructional detail!

These kits and instructional material are a solid introduction to guitarmaking.

These are great sounding guitars!
You get a bookmatched AAA back and side set, available in rosewood or mahogany. The AAA solid spruce top has been thickness-sanded and profiled. We've slotted the rosewood fingerboard, included pre-cut inlays and a genuine bone nut and saddle.

Choose a bolt-on neck or a traditional dovetail—both are machined for an accurate fit, saving you hours of complicated work. Width at the nut is approximately 1-7/8". Only the final trimming and sanding are required.

Included in the kit is a Hot Rod Truss Rod, to make the neck two-way adjustable.

Save time, save tools.
You don't need to tool up for critical machine work like side bending, shaping the neck and cutting the heel joint. You'll hand build and finish an heirloom quality instrument.

Solid AAA tonewoods: Spruce, rosewood and mahogany
Precision-machined neck joint
Precut heavy cardboard molds for trouble-free body assembly
Detailed instructions, DVD and builder's plans included FREE!
Hundreds of our kits have been built by first-time builders and
experienced luthiers

You add the tuners.
From years of supplying kits to builders we know that you'll want to choose the finishing touches, so tuners and strings are not included. To personalize your guitar, see our selection for the steel-string tuning machines for slotted pegheads. Pegholes will need to reamed slightly to fit the Schaller tuners.

"What tools do I need to build a kit?"

Customize your kit to be a left-handed instrument.
Though our guitar kits are intended for right-handed players, the soundboard bracing patterns can be reversed to build a left-handed instrument. You can make a left-handed bridge from scratch using one of our bridge blanks.

000 Guitar Kit

I have just finished my 000 Rosewood Guitar. Put strings on it Wednesday night and played it at a gig on Saturday. It turned way beyond my exceptions, the quality on the materials and the instructions made this an achievable task with excellent results. Thank to the crew at Stewmac.

Triple O kit

Without doubt one of the most comprehensive kits in the Stewmac catalogue I put a d28 kit together about 3 years ago and the difference is amazing They make it easy with preformed bracing and sides and yet its still challenging enough to delight you as you see the instrument take shape by following the very clear instructions I have yet to go into the CD guide as the book covers everything comprehensively
