Testimonials

"I’m about 10 tops into a stack of 40 cedar tops I got from you, and whenever I want to start a new guitar, I just walk over and pick a top off the stack, and start building.
They are all that great! I don’t have to dink around with the pattern, or select the “best" one: I just start building. I love that!  I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your high standards, and what a pleasure it is to do business with you!"

LMI Yellow Instrument Glue

ADHESIVESYellowInstrumentGlue28sizesFGX600
 
ADHESIVESGluBotandBabeBot300

Over the years LMI has provided guitar makers with the best possible adhesives to use on their instruments. Now we are offering this new yellow instrument glue with an amazing set of features that exceeds anything else we have offered in the past.

Here’s why we like FGX:

  1. Excellent sanding properties. Will not gum up sanding belts like most glues (a problem with FG and others), and soundboards are spared messy sanding residue from the glue.
  2. Discreet florescent dye additive allows you to clearly see (in black light) “invisible” glue residue that can ruin a finish, saving untold hours spent repairing finishes. Try it!
  3. Easier than other glues to clean up.
  4. Dries harder than other commercial glues (some believe this makes it a better “tone transference medium”).
  5. Excellent hold strength with a variety of exotic woods, including oily woods like Cocobolo (though common sense cleaning and surface preparation should be used on these woods).
  6. Clamps can be removed in 30 minutes, even in warm temperatures (though it’s best to wait an hour or longer). You can begin machine sanding (which introduces heat) in as little as 90 minutes if you are in a pinch for time.
  7. Repairable. Joints separate at around 190 degrees (about the same as FG) but more heat resistant at lower temperatures.
  8. Non-toxic, environmentally friendly.
