Testimonials

I've been buying products from LMI since the 70's, long before the web was around. 
The selection and quality has always been superior, and the pricing reasonable! There are other places I can go to buy materials, but none that I trust as much...

Khaya Neck Blanks

NECKSblankKhaya250Khaya ivorensis

Khaya has often been overlooked as a substitute for genuine Honduran Mahogany. We have carried it for years for backs and sides, and though it is a very attractive wood, the wide pores, lighter weight and pinkish color we usually see in this species clearly distinguish it from "the real thing". But we have now found that there are different strains of Khaya which look nearly identical to Honduran Mahogany - or at least present themselves as the best substitute we have come across so far!

It should be mentioned that the suggestion to carry it came to us from a well know manufacturer that has been using it for a while on their high-end instruments with no protests from their discerning customers.

Note: The longer a neck blank is, the more difficult it becomes to maintain straight grain along the entire piece. We attempt to maintain straight grain along our 35 inch necks for at least 24 inches after which the grain may veer slightly off the board.

• Parts for added heels and heel blocks can be found under Various Heel Blocks.
