I have a large stock of Genuine Martin guitar kits with solid spruce tops, Bookmatched East Indian Rosewood & Mahogany side sets and Backs. There is included truss rod and neck and end blocks. Also black binding material as Well as Herring bone Binding material. There are plenty of braces and extra bracing material should you need it for you specs. Braces may need sanding, sawing, or adjustments to suit your needs. The Fingerboards & bridges are made from Richlite, a wood fiber composite material that is now used on all martin guitar kits. Rosewood and ebony are no longer available due to dwindling supplies of these woods worldwide. Nut & saddle material, Included are a set of genuine martin sterling silver plated enclosed Ghoto tuning machines. These tuners are Martin 2nds and are considered scratch and dents..Necks in dovetail With volute & truss rod or moryis & Tennon or plain dovetails.. Kerfing included. Comes with everything you need to make your kit. Fretboards can come fretted or just slotted with fretwire to fret yourself.. I have pre assembled rims, straight sides or pre bent. Even Rosewood laminate sides bent with a mahogany core.

All of my parts and kits are Genuine Martin Guitar 2nds that come from the factory but did not meet the strict specifications of the master craftsmen at Martin. They are generally small flaws that are easy to work with and do not affect the tone or playability of the instrument. As a disclaimer, I must inform that although I try to point out every flaw that I can find, there can sometimes be others that include worm holes, scratches, scuffs, sand & saw marks, checks, cracks, windbreaks, dings, dents, and other defects associated with 2nds of this nature.

I strongly recommend that you have some woodworking skills and tools and clamps and such to build these guitar kits. There are several online resources to find plans and advice such as Guitar kit builders forum that you might find of help.

Please keep in mind that I am not an expert on Martin guitars though I try to identify and explain every item I sell as completely as possible and will promptly reply to all emails ASAP.

Bob,he can't PM you because he does not meet the minimum post requirements yet.He will have to disclose it publicly or give out an email addy...this is a security measure added because of a hug rash of spam PMs the membership was getting from spambots with no post count a while back.

I don't mind discussing it openly or giving out my email. I have full kits that I'm asking between 150-275 depending on what type kit and woods. A mahogany side and back model is going to be less than the rosewoods. Same with mortis and tenon necks vs dovetails and so on.

I'm very open to selling parts seperate as well. Tuners, necks, flay woods, etc...

my email is spellboxer at yahoo. com Email me

I put this on the OLF so folks could see it as well. And everyone on there that's bought so far has been super happy with this guy's stuff! He seems to be really nice, generous, and quick.

How do I get in touch with you? I was told to ask you this: "See if he has 0 or 00 size kits. Build it the same as a steel string except use a classical style bracing structure (ie: will have to source your own bracing material, that's it. Also cheap). Be a great little first project. Also see if he has non-Sitka top options (like lutz) and/or tops without the sound hole cut yet so you have control over the size. "
