Mini LP-Style Electric Guitar Kit

About This Item

Big humbucker tone in a small package
Don't let the size fool you—this is a real guitar you can build in an afternoon, no shop required. It's no toy, you'll have a ton of fun building and playing it for years to come.

Customers loved our Mini S-Style and Mini T-Style kits, and wanted something with more of a single cut style. We're excited to bring you the Mini-LP! It has the same styling of its big brother, but with a shorter scale and tuned to a higher pitch. You can play all the same chords and scales you know with a completely new tone.

Looking for a super-easy first build?
If you've been on the fence about trying your first guitar build, this kit is just what you need. Everything comes pre-routed—the bridge location is already pre-drilled. Each neck is fit to each pocket for a super tight neck joint.

And, it's a one day build. Open the box in the morning and you'll be playing by afternoon. If you have a coffee table, you've got enough space to build this simple kit.

Plays just like your favorite guitars
This guitar sounds and plays just like a full scale guitar. Everything from the nut width (1-5/8") to the electronics and hardware are the same size as traditional full-size guitars (other than the neck plate). While everything is perfect right out of the box, it's easy to make this guitar your own. From vintage vibe to crazy modern, you can customize this guitar exactly how you want.

    Mini LP-Style Electric Guitar Kit includes:
  • Mahogany body, ready for final sanding and finishing
  • Body is pre-routed and drilled for the proper placement of the neck, pickup, controls and control cavity, bridge, and tailpiece
  • Pre-fretted mahogany neck with blank peghead and pre-installed truss rod
  • 16.3" (414mm) scale length with 1-5/8" nut width
  • Pre-installed fingerboard inlays
  • Slotted nut
  • Sealed tuners
  • Full sized humbucker with pots and switch included for easy installation
  • Output jack
  • Classic LP-style chrome tune-o-matic and stop tailpiece
  • Gibson-style knobs
  • Strings
  • Detailed instructions written specifically for this kit

Looking for a full-sized LP-style kit? We've got those too!

Explore new sounds!
This little guitar sounds great in multiple tunings due to the shorter scale. For a totally new but familiar tone, we've enjoyed tuning these one octave up in standard, A to A (like a capo at the 5th fret), and all sorts of open tunings. Find what inspires you.

Great so far...

In the process of building this and doing great until the electronics, the instructions are absolutely terrible! Very frustrating.

Fun Jambino Kit besides electronics

By


I've wanted a mini LP for years and decided to pick up this kit for my own Great Jambino. Instructions are good, until electronics are concerned, excellent neck fit, no missing parts. Expect to spend some time on the frets. I opted to try new build items not included, bookmatch maple drop cap and binding, which does jazz it up a bit. Colortone stains, lacquer and thinner were used, binding purchased from StewMac. As for playability, my sausage fingers makes it a challenge, but I'm quite happy with the results.

Fun little build, and a riot to play!

By

Verified Buyer


Such a cool project! Like others, I wish the pots and pickup didn't come pre-soldered, but not a big deal. This sits next to my desk and is easy to reach for when I have a couple of minutes to waste or when the right song comes on the radio. Will probably be building another one for the nephew in a couple months.

Little Gem

Bought for my nephew. Good little build. Electronics were a little rough. Jack broke when I plugged it in. Thank goodness I had a spare. Tuned it to a lower tuning, A I think. Sounds great. Would definitely buy another kit.

Amazing, but oh gosh the pre-wired pots

By

Verified Buyer


Everything fit together tightly and accurately.

I did have to re-bore the tuning peg holes just slightly, 2 of them wouldn't allow the pegs to go in. It took all of a minute and maybe 3-4 rotations with a sharp bit.

On to the wiring - The base instructions in the book show a 500 and 250 pot, but it comes with 2 500's. They're pre-wired between the two of them, and then a supplement tells you to basically undo whatever it was they did and start over.
I put it together using the supplemental instructions provided, and both pots work as Volume?
Then I realized after researching all over the place that the pre-soldered capacitor was on the wrong pot.

Guys, I know it would drive costs up but this really should be handled before shipping to the customer.

I haven't undone this yet because 'all the way up' is how i usually play with the tone so it's not a big deal for me. Plus, I can't make a mistake when turning the volume down (ha ha).

The frets are rough on the neck, plan on spending some time with that.

Using the mystery-gauge strings provided it's been really stable tuning in C standard (drop C an octave up?). I tried A as they suggested and the strings were too floppy and I couldn't handle the fret buzz on the low 'E' string.

Overall it's now my most played guitar as it's always in my hands when I'm lounging around.

I'd have given it 5 stars if it weren't for the wiring issues.

Great Little Kit

By

Verified Buyer


This little kit was a lot of fun to build. I had no problems with any of it although I have build kits previously so was familiar with the process. I didn't use the strings that came with the kit but instead used a set of 10's that were offered to me at a discount when I bought the kit. I had no problems at all setting the tuning. The frets were pretty rough on the edges so needed some filing to smooth them out. Overall it's a really nice little kit that is a lot of fun to put together.

I wanted to try my hand at a ‘mini’ tribute to the late King Edward Van Halen, and this Mini LP was perfect for the experiment. Long Live The King!
