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."

Sapele, plain

BSSapeleBSSA1SS500b

Entandrophragma cylindricum

Sapele is a little heavier and a good alternative to Honduran Mahogany but finer textured. A fine guitar wood due to the relative low cost, ease of working, and stability. Bending success is improved if less water is used. Colors range from light pink to medium brown to reddish brown. The figure on well-quartered pieces is the characteristic stripe resulting from interlocked grain.

The special grade quilted Sapele is riddled with deep, rich figure that covers the entire board. Although any figured wood presents some difficulties when bending, this wood is not significantly problematic and no unusual problems have been reported. We have only a very few sets of this stunning wood available.
