“I'm doing some wood binding today, and I pulled out a few pieces of curly maple I've had for a while that I bought from you. It never ceases to amaze me how LMI, above all my other suppliers, just consistently gives me materials that never fail to surpass my expectations. No matter what any picture on your site looks like, whatever I get is always better. Really appreciate it. I know that you supply many other people far beyond my volume and talent, but I am definitely a customer for life!"

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.
