Testimonials

Greetings,

I recently ordered a couple of Bearclaw Sitka guitar tops and I wanted to let you know that not only did they arrive safe and sound but they are beautiful. Amazing figure! Having been less than satisfied with some wood suppliers over the years it's comforting to know that LMII has consistently come across in both quality and integrity. I never have to worry and that's a wonderful thing!

Thanks again,
Marc Beneteau

Pre-slotted/Pre-radiused Fingerboards

On Sale this month. Every fingerboard is discounted $4.50!

LMI stocks a good selection of pre-slotted and pre-radiused boards ready to ship. These fingerboards are not tapered, allowing you more leeway in your design. The boards are CNC slotted with a nut slot offset to correct for fret saw blade kerf for compensation purposes so that the bridge edge of the slot is at true zero. This method of slotting works well for most builders. To bring the breakaway point of the nut slot closer to the bridge, it is easy to file away the amount of material desired. This method will not allow a zero fret.

The slots on our pre-serviced boards follow the radius. The 1/8" Fender nut slot is flat to accommodate the nut. 7/8" of wood is left behind the nut on the SFB5, SFB14 and SFB15.
