Testimonials

I want to express my deepest gratitude to the team at LMII.  When I started making guitars 26 years ago, my first guitar was made from wood that I ordered from the LMI catalog (there was no internet back then). Since then, the team at LMI has been nothing short of excellent!  The products and services are second to none.  My only regret is that I waited 26 years to say...THANK YOU!

Respectfully, 
Tony Vines

Indian Laurel

BSIndianLaurelBS1L1SS800Terminalia tomentosa

Indian Laurel lives in the shadow of India's main tonewood export, Indian Rosewood, but should not be overlooked. Denser than most Rosewoods, it has surprising sonic potential. The wood is quite attractive, though don't expect as much variation set-to-set as you find with Indian Rosewood. A robust, even, brown color is augmented by lightly variegated dark lines and very subtle cross-grain figure. Side bending is somewhat more challenging, as you would expect from a dense wood, but we have not had problems in our shop. Indian Laurel finishes, machines and glues well.

Many of these sets have very small fissures (see photo) which can be filled with epoxy and wood dust. They should not present any significant problems.
