Before i place the order, is there anything that is absolutely necessary to buy at stewmac durring the initial stages of building (besides glue and clamps)?

There will be lots of things you will need, but almost all of them are things you can either get else ware, or improvise using something else. I would take a quick read over the manual, especially the tool list to see what they recommend, what you already have, and what you think you can improvise using other things. So, for your initial order, I would say you need the kit from Stewmac. Glue, clamps, chisels, sandpaper, etc. can be purchased elseware for less. I made my own cam clamps, but if you need to buy them, Stewmac is a good place to buy them. You can also go to Ken's site and buy the clamp kits he has. Personally, I don't use cam clamps much, I use F clamps and C clamps mostly.

Believe me, before this ride is over, the name Stewmac and LMI will be on your CC statement many, many times!

David's advice is good. When I built my first 000 kit, never having built anything before, I bought a lot of stuff from Stewmac and learned later that it was available locally for a lot less.

Very good! Thanks guys. I pretty much have everything (I think) that I will need up until the neck set, fret/nut files, & router bit/guide (which I can't decide on). I think I will get all that at another time. My birthday is in march...maybe then :o)

I love that feeling of pressing that last enter button, knowing that the fun is about to begin. If it helps, my first guitar on my blog is a Stewmac OOO. It shows how I got around buying clamps and some of the other hurdles that I came across... being a total novice. Enjoy your build

And now the hard part....... waiting! Actually, the really hard part is yet to come..... waiting for the wood to acclimate.

Congrat's on taking the plunge.

Well..........I thought the kit was on it's way. I had a bad number or something on my credit card NOW it is on it's way!

COOL! Check out the tools section of Bills forum, a lot of discussion on what we have used, what has worked and what hasn't! Also, look at Frets.com for alternatives to production level tooling, there are some great tips there. I learned onthe site he has devoted to machine tooling about using mineral oil to wet-sand with not wet/dry sand paper, and it worked perfectly!

WELL......I got another emial w/the tracking info and they gave me 2 numbers. When I looked further, there are two packages. Further investigation show that the BOLT ON NECKS ARE ON BACKORDER. :( I guess this is the second package.

I wonder how long stewmac's stuff stays on backorder?

But wait...I just tracked both packages and BOTH are on deliver. So, I guess the second package is NOT the neck.?.?...

Stewmac's order department is actually pretty fast, so the necks could have been on back order and arrived and shipped all in the same day. You could still start building, since you don't need the neck right away, and the neck block is probably packed with the rest of the kit. (The looseness of their fit makes me think that they do not make them as a two-piece unit.)

I just got an email saying it was the neck block that was backordered :(

BUT, I guess I ordered my kit just in time. Stewmac just increased the price on the hog 000 kit to $395.00 (i got mine for 360)!

I was planning to order the Stew Mac 000 in rosewood, but the price increase is pretty hefty.

The DVD is VERY good. BUT you can buy it for <$40. My point is, if the stewmac kit is not exactly what you want, you might look at the LMII wizard. They may be about the same $$ for the exact kit you want. For me, the 000 slot head is all of what i want.
