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!

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.
