Three boxes on the stoop from LMI. Two contained the almost complete contents for Larry’s LMI Maple OM. The kit wizard is a great way to build your own inventory of components for the guitar to be built, but there’s so many places to go wrong, I think we missed a few things and ordered some superfluous stuff as well. What’s missing is a rosewood heel cap, rosewood binding for the fretboard, fretboard MOP dots in black, and whatever we decide is needed to augment the rosette (we only ordered a single lacewood ring). While upacking I was concerned that there wasn’t enough stuff. Alas, it’s all there. And the largest item was the maple neckblock, immensly heavy and enough raw material to make two necks and neck blocks to boot.
