LP-Style Electric Guitar Kits

About This Item

THE rock-n-roll standard
This is the guitar you've seen in the hands of your idols since childhood. You know all the details: the stunning top, the arches and curves of the body, and the responsive set neck. When you see the body shape you instantly know the thick, warm, bold tones that this guitar is famed for. Don't just dream of owning one, build it yourself with a few simple tools.

These kits are ready for you to open the box and start your build. Like the S and T-style kits, we've made it easy for anyone to make a great guitar on their first try.

The right details for the right tone
These are made with the traditional specs, arched top and set neck. Each of our kits comes with the neck individually matched and fit to each body, for a perfect fit. No need to worry about getting the neck angle just right, we've dialed it in for you.


Get 50% off a Finishing Set!
Finally, you can make this guitar look amazing with the iconic colors you've always imagined—all without complicated spray equipment! ColorTone Aerosol Finishing Sets make it simple to get professional results you'll be proud of. You'll get 50% off these finishing sets when you purchase a kit. Choose from these classic colors:

Cherry Sunburst - Flame Top Also sold separately
This is it! This Cherry Red is the perfect match for the 1958, 1959, and 1960 'bursts.

Antique Gold - Flame Top Also sold separately
This is the 1950s Goldtop you've been looking for. It's a dark and warm gold color with a metallic brass look, the perfect match of those original Goldtops.

Dark Back - Spalted Top Also sold separately
This set is inspired by the very dark tobacco brown finish seen on the back and neck of many 50s Gibsons.

Great pattern on Spalted Top

By

Verified Buyer


My wife bought this for my birthday. It's the 4th kit I've made, I did make a few adjustments to the accessories i.e. I used Kluson lockable Tuners and Wilkinson Pickups and fitted a bone nut. I was extremely impressed with the spalted pattern in the top which when spray varnished finished beautifully. Really impressed with the finish and the sound.
Excellent customer service. Many thanks again

Meh...its ok

I liked that the neck angle seems to be setup by stew mac. However, the flame maple cap leaves alot to be desired. I found areas where the cap is coming up from the body causing a bubble, also looks like there was a 4 inch crack on the cap and it was re-glued. Now there is a ton of dried glue on the top where my stain isn't going to take. Very disappointing. Another issue I found was the nut. Looks to me like there is neck binding underneath it causing it to be extremely high. I probably should have sent it back. I will have to think twice before purchasing another from stew mac.

Great kit. Takes stain well and goes together well. Everything you need is included minus glue finish and tools.

Great value!

I built two of these with no issues... yes, I replaced all hardware and electronics $800 and I am an experienced builder, but still, I ended up with a nice Les Paul for $1000. No, it's not AAA flame but what do you want for $200? Just make sure the neck is right before you assemble and level the frets. You won't be disapointed.

I ordered the flame top lp kit. It arrived quickly and undamaged. The figure on the top was great, even though the veneer is thin. Glue spots around the edges of the binding seem to be an issue with all kits in this price range, so doing a wood dye is tricky. That being said, the kit is better than I expected with the wood being grain matched well, and the color is consistent. I'll do a little burst on the front and I believe it will be beautiful. Here is a pic before the burst. I'll be doing another kit when this is done. Thanks Tommy, and the guys a Stemac.

Everything and more!

I ordered this Spalted top LP style kit thinking, "Okay, I'm paying about $250 for this, so I'm going to get what I pay for - I'm not expecting a whole lot with this." I was totally wrong! This kit is everything and more than what I expected! The quality is there, the instructions (which I didn't need), we're concise, accurate, and easy to understand. The staff at StewMac was there for any issues I may have encountered, were knowledgeable, friendly, and very professional. Although I'm building this kit as I write this and am just waiting on my gold hardware to complete it, I am absolutely pleased with the progress, craftsmanship, material of build, and hardware (which I will use on another StewMac guitar), of this guitar kit. Absolutely beautiful and I intend on ONLY going through StewMac for any parts, accessories, or assistance with anything I need. Thank you again, StrewMac!

Second to none Technical Support

I bought this LP style guitar kit as a second project from StewMac. My previous was a 335 style guitar. As with all things in life, things can go wrong and I have always had the belief that it 's how the problems are resolved that really matters. The LP Style Kit I received had no hole for an output jack. Yeah I know, what are the chances. I contacted StewMac Technical Support and the problem was resolved within a few hours. Tommy Stumpp was extremely helpful and had a replacement on its way within a day with prepaid return shipping arrangements for the defective kit.

Thank you Tommy for making the process painless and fun. Yes I said fun!

Happy Customer

I am especially pleased with the maple top I received on the body. The neck looks great as well and the instruction manual looks awesome. Thanks....will add a photo when I’m finished the build. Only a minute bit of maple missing from under the binding at the cut away. Full sized pots would have been great...but I suppose you’re keeping the price down. Nothing wrong with that.
