Testimonials

I want to express my deepest gratitude to the team at LMII.  When I started making guitars 26 years ago, my first guitar was made from wood that I ordered from the LMI catalog (there was no internet back then). Since then, the team at LMI has been nothing short of excellent!  The products and services are second to none.  My only regret is that I waited 26 years to say...THANK YOU!

Respectfully, 
Tony Vines

Katalox (pronounced "cat-ah-losh") is a dense, hard Central American wood that is similar to Ebony. The color is dark brown to nearly black with subtle red/purple highlights. Martin Guitar has used Katalox fingerboards on several of their guitar models. With a bit of oil, we feel that this wood would be very difficult to differentiate from Ebony.
