Testimonials

“It's nice to know that
I have a good
source for quality
guitar wood as
well as guitar parts
fabrication, such as
LMI's fingerboard
slotting service. 
As I am only set up
to slot 650mm
fingerboards, you
guys have saved my
butt on making me
several odd scale
lengths recently! 
I want you to know
that I appreciate
you guys and the
wood and services
that you supply
to me, a small,
independent luthier. 
Your fine fingerboard
slotting service
saves me a lot of
time and trouble,
for which I am grateful. 
THANK YOU!"

Sanding & Joining

JoinedTopsServicecrop

 

TOPS: joined and sanded
We join and sand all our tops with 120 grit sandpaper to .110"(2.8mm), except Western Redcedar & Redwood which we sand to : 0.115" (2.9mm) Custom thicknesses are available, please ask.

 

BACKS: joined and sanded, sides sanded
Backs can also be joined and sanded to thickness. You can then route a groove on the centerline and inlay a backstrip. We can include one of our backstrips in the joint if you desire (use product code SVBI). Though many believe the best method is to inlay the backstrip in the center, we are only set-up to ‘sandwich’ it between the plates when we join them. Backs can be sanded unjoined as well if you prefer to join. Sides can be sanded to bending thickness. Sanding thickness: joined back 0.095", unjoined back halves 0.100", sides bending thickness 0.090".

We are unable to insert the following backstrips: BI6B, BI20B

*Thicknesses may vary 5%.
Allow 3 or 4 days for sanding services, and 1 week for joining and sanding or backstrip installation.
