Testimonials

I've been buying products from LMI since the 70's, long before the web was around. 
The selection and quality has always been superior, and the pricing reasonable! There are other places I can go to buy materials, but none that I trust as much...

Bending Sides & Binding

BENDING SIDES / BENDING CUTAWAY SIDES
We have a tremendous amount of side bending experience.
We will bend any of the woods that we offer into the shapes listed below.

This table shows how your sides will be tapered (straight taper) for each type of guitar shape we bend. Additional material will need to be removed (with a bandsaw or hand plane) to bring the sides to their final profile.
GUITAR TYPE PLAN NO. PROFILE
OM/000 (Orchestra) PL34 3.75"- 4.5"
Classical PL64/PL28/PL40 3.75"- 4.5"
Dreadnought PL48 4.25"- 5.0"
Flamenco PL56 4.25"- 4.5"
J45/J50-style (Small Jumbo) PL67 4.25"- 5.0"
J200-style (Large Jumbo) PL55 4.25"- 5.0"
Parlor/Small Orchestra PL29 3.75"- 4.5"
J185-style (Jumbo) PL72 4.25"- 5.0"

Allow about a week for side bending – Each order is essentially custom.
