Testimonials

“I recently purchased a beautiful fingerboard from you and now I am thinking of grabbing fretwire from you as well. Unfortunately I'm cheap and lazy and find myself here asking if it is possible to pay more to have your fretwire radiused before it is sent? You guys would be the coolest ever. No matter what the outcome, I will be sending more business your way from here in Maine. Hoping for good news! Thank you!"

LMI YELLOW INSTRUMENT GLUE

ADHESIVESYellowInstrumentGlue28sizesFGX600CUSTOMER QUESTIONS ABOUT FGX

Q: Has this glue been used to make guitars before?
A: Yes, it has been extensively tested and has already been used to make hundreds of guitars of various types.

Q: Is there a difference between white and yellow glues in general?
A: Not chemically. Yellow dyes are sometimes added to glues (not by us) for marketing purposes only.

Q: Have we seen this glue marketed to instrument makers before?
A: No, and by the way, we feel it is very different and much better than Titebond, despite its similar appearance.

Q: How should I store the FGX?
A: Do not freeze, room temperature (70-85 degrees F) is best. One year shelf life under worst case conditions, much longer when stored properly. Best to use at room temperature – will chalk at cold temperatures.

Q: Will the UV additive show if the performer plays the guitar under black light?
A: With proper joinery, you will not see the glue line. Glue should not be used to fill gaps in any case, and doing so would create the only case where it would be visible.
