Testimonials

Hello! My first-ever order arrived today. I had ordered some wood items and they are GORGEOUS! Smooth, perfectly flat!, and the woods themselves - with each one I pulled out, I just kept saying, WOW!, *WOW*!!!, over and over.  And thank you so much for the beautiful piece of East Indian Rosewood - it was described as "2nd grade" I believe, and I asked for a reddish color if possible, and I think this piece is absolutely stunning! These really exceeded my expectations! Thank you!"

Richlite Preserviced SmRev

Richlite® is a versatile composite that was traditionally used as an industrial tooling material. The benefits of using it for fingerboards and bridge blanks are numerous.

  • Market tested – it has been in use on factory guitars with good results
  • No shrinkage – meaning no sharp fret ends due to wood shrinkage
  • Less chip out during machining – LMI has tested this material extensively - see photo right
  • No voids or inconsistencies – consistent density
  • Machines with standard tools
  • Black – need we say more?
  • Once polished, has the look of ebony
  • Made in the USA
  • Made from environmentally certified material

The Richlite we offer is produced from 100% post-consumer waste paper pulp – recycled paper mostly from home and office recycling in the mid-west!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Before gluing Richlite up, it’s important that you abrade it with 80-100 grit sandpaper for best adhesion.
