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!"

Bridge Plate

BridgeplatePlatesPadsFor reinforcing the bridge area, Maple or Rosewood bridge plates are used on steel string guitars underneath the soundboard, as illustrated. For classical guitars a bridge pad is often used, which adds stability and increases stiffness across the grain. Usually there is enough material left from the soundboard to make this pad, but should you run short we have made them available here.


Bridge “plates” are used on steel string guitars, bridge pads (made of top wood) are used on classical guitars. Most classicals require the 12” size.
