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."

Sanding & Joining

 

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.
