Testimonials

Bed time... I don't think so. Not when you have the new LMI plunge Dremel base and a curly mahogany set that needs a sound port. I Love it. That was my first try at it. It knock off bout 15-20min of work! I knew exactly what I needed if for when you told me you had some with you at the GAL. I love that base and the light attachment is beyond perfect!

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.
