Testimonials

“It's nice to know that
I have a good
source for quality
guitar wood as
well as guitar parts
fabrication, such as
LMI's fingerboard
slotting service. 
As I am only set up
to slot 650mm
fingerboards, you
guys have saved my
butt on making me
several odd scale
lengths recently! 
I want you to know
that I appreciate
you guys and the
wood and services
that you supply
to me, a small,
independent luthier. 
Your fine fingerboard
slotting service
saves me a lot of
time and trouble,
for which I am grateful. 
THANK YOU!"

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.
