Testimonials

“Thanks for continuing to strive for excellence in the many services you provide. The website looks great. The more streamlined look is less distracting and I think will make navigating the sight even better!

I have been using LMII as my main wood/parts supplier for almost 5 years now. LMII not only provides excellent products, but has been a link for me to gain access to a tremendous amount of expert knowledge and instruction on acoustic guitar building. Thanks for striving so hard to connect the dots for newer luthiers like myself to be able to benefit from the hard earned experience of the pros. I am now starting on my tenth guitar and have sold 6 of them. With each build, I strive to venture to new personal ground and it comforts me to know that LMII is always there and I can depend upon you guys for whatever I need, every step of the way."

Rock Maple Fingerboard

FINGERBOARDRockMapleWFBMA1500Rock Maple comes from the eastern coast of North America, and unlike the more regularly figured Bigleaf maple, Rock Maple offers the requisite hardness and stability of a good fingerboard wood. These boards are quartersawn unless otherwise labeled, and even colored.

“Tempered”, “Roasted”, “baked” or 'cooked' woods are exposed to temperatures of 350° to 425° Fahrenheit (about 180°-220° Celsius). They are "cooked" in a vacuum chamber so that there is no flame or burning. The process is called 'torrefaction'. There are number of positive results with tempered wood including a darker color, greater stability, feel, and tone. We carry light tempered and dark tempered Rock Maple fingerboards.
