Recently, N = 3 mass-deformed ABJM model with arbitrary mass-function depending on a spatial coordinate was constructed. In addition to the N = 3 case, we construct lower supersymmetric N = 1 and N = 2 inhomogeneously mass-deformed ABJM (ImABJM) models, which require three and two arbitrary mass-functions, respectively. We also construct general vacuum solutions of the N = 3 ImABJM model for any periodic mass-function. There are two classes of vacua, which are diagonal type and GRVV type according to reference value of mass-functions. We provide explicit examples of the vacuum solutions and discuss related operators.
