Testimonials

“I really appreciate the extra mile you guys are going to make sure your customers are satisfied. I have a degree in business and I've studied all that stuff about how companies are doing their best to keep their customer satisfied through marketing and incentives, but I can't think of another company (in any field) that makes me as satisfied as you guys do. I'm sure there are some places that sell materials here in Japan, but even with extra cost of shipping and customs fee, I prefer to buy from LMI, because I can trust LMI's service and quality of materials. No marketing and incentives can match the solid good service and I'm a very happy LMI customer.”

Granadillo

BSGranadilloWGRENJ700Platymiscium yucatanum

Granadillo is a relatively new wood to American guitar making but is fairly common in South America. It is non-porous, straight grained, very dense, and has a ringing, bright tap tone. It works easily but can dull tools a bit, has a medium to fine texture, and finishes well. The reddish brown color will darken to a brick color over time much like Honduran rosewood. It is sure to become popular for steel string guitars.

On occasion we may downgrade a Granadillo set to second grade for any of the following reasons: slabsawn, unevenness of color and/or figure, small, solid pin-knots. These second grade sets make fine sounding instruments with great character at a great price.
See an example of a  2nd grade set.
