Testimonials

“I'm doing some wood binding today, and I pulled out a few pieces of curly maple I've had for a while that I bought from you. It never ceases to amaze me how LMI, above all my other suppliers, just consistently gives me materials that never fail to surpass my expectations. No matter what any picture on your site looks like, whatever I get is always better. Really appreciate it. I know that you supply many other people far beyond my volume and talent, but I am definitely a customer for life!"

Wood is the heart of a guitar,
the source of its sound and beauty.
And as you will see as you get to know LMI,
wood is also the heart of our company.

 

SHOP WITH CONFIDENCE
Over many years LMI has developed the resources and knowledge that enable us to locate woods, prepare them, and provide them to luthiers. Our selection is the largest available anywhere for the custom guitar builder, and the success of our company rides on the quality of the dozens of species of tonewood and hardwood we offer.

We apply equally high standards to the other materials and tools we supply. We expect our offerings to complement the talent and effort you put into each of your instruments.

As you might guess, we are confident in our products. If we send you any item that does not meet your standards for quality, please feel free to return it—for exchange, credit, or refund. We only ask that you speak to a salesperson, that the product be unaltered and unworked, and returned within 2 weeks of receiving it. This policy does not apply to items from our service department because these items have been altered. For more information, please see our LMI Policy page.
