Testimonials

“I have seldom had
experience with
a company with
such careful attention
to customer
satisfaction.
Although I am sure
my orders are
smaller than most,
your products have
been of the highest
quality and your
responsiveness to
my special requests
have always been
treated with
respect and
timeliness. 
My thanks to
all of your staff."

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.
