LP-Style Electric Guitar Kits

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.

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

Antique Gold 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.

First-time builder? No sweat.
You don't need a workshop, and there's a good chance you already own all the tools you'll need to get the job done. This kit comes with our step-by-step, beginner-friendly instructions and our highly knowledgeable staff of guitar techs are ready to help. StewMac has you covered, so you can enjoy the build.

Your kit includes everything you'll need:

  • Mahogany body with maple top and premium flame maple veneer
  • Neck pocket, pickup cavities and bridge holes are all drilled and routed for the perfect placement and fit
  • Shaped mahogany neck has a 2-way truss rod installed
  • 24-9/16" scale length (623.88mm) 
  • Bound Indian Laurel fingerboard comes pre-installed with frets and traditional crown pearloid inlays
  • Peghead is ready for your personal custom shape
  • Pre-slotted nut for perfect action
  • Chrome plated hardware—from sealed tuners to strap buttons
  • Traditional tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece
  • Humbucking pickups with chrome covers
  • Quality potentiometers, caps, and wire
  • Output jack
  • Cream pickup rings, cover plates and accessories
  • Traditional gold top-hat bell knobs
  • Truss rod wrench

Important! Take care when finishing—do not apply stain directly to the veneered top wood. First add your color to a finish such as lacquer, shellac, or poly (NOT water or alcohol), and then apply it to the veneer. This prevents the top from looking blotchy or taking color unevenly. All of our tinted and solid color ColorTone Aerosol Lacquers make this easy—the color is mixed with lacquer right in the easy-to-apply-can!
