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."

Koa Backs, Sides & Tops

BSKoaBradDavis600Acacia Koa

Hawaiian Koa is easily one of the most sought after tonewoods available, with colors ranging from brown to gold with rich and varying grain. It is also becoming a rare commodity. As a result, you will see some minor defects in the pattern area that we now consider acceptable due to it's scarcity.

Koa looks as exotic as the region it's from. With an open pore structure like Mahogany, it needs to be filled, but works well in all respects with the usual care taken for curly figure.

PLEASE NOTE:
Due to the scarcity of good material, Koa is undeniably expensive. If you are looking for something less expensive, consider the Black Acacia. It is a very close cousin of Koa. Possessing all of Koa's most desirable traits, it is nearly indistinguishable!

Because these sets are one-of-a-kind, they cannot be reserved.  Once a set is purchased, it will disappear from the page. If a set was already put in another persons cart, they will not be able to check out until they remove it.
