Testimonials

“Thanks for continuing to strive for excellence in the many services you provide. The website looks great. The more streamlined look is less distracting and I think will make navigating the sight even better!

I have been using LMII as my main wood/parts supplier for almost 5 years now. LMII not only provides excellent products, but has been a link for me to gain access to a tremendous amount of expert knowledge and instruction on acoustic guitar building. Thanks for striving so hard to connect the dots for newer luthiers like myself to be able to benefit from the hard earned experience of the pros. I am now starting on my tenth guitar and have sold 6 of them. With each build, I strive to venture to new personal ground and it comforts me to know that LMII is always there and I can depend upon you guys for whatever I need, every step of the way."

Cherry, American

Prunus serotina

American Cherry is a wood common to fine-woodworking in the USA, being one of the few native hardwoods that has an attractive, warm color and sometimes, curly figure. It appears occasionally on factory instruments (it can be found on some Martins), though the scarcity of figured Cherry has limited its use in recent decades.

Tonally it is compared to other medium-density woods like Walnut and Maple, though some compare it with Mahogany. Expect an open quality with nice separation and clear trebles and good presence in the mid-range.
