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!"

Tor-tis™ is a great pick-guard product designed to match the original tortoise-style pick-guards of the '30s and '40s, but with many more advantages. Impact and scratch resistant, it will not shrink or crack. Highly refractive, chemically inert (untouched by all solvents), with the Tor-tis™ resins backed by twenty-five years of industrial use, any tortoise would be proud to sport Tor-tis™ as its carapace.

Tor-tissheet stock measures:
4 1/2" x 7 1/4"

The sheets can be softened in warm water then cut with sharp scissors. Bevel the edges with dry 180-200 grit though 1200 grit wet or dry sandpaper, then polish (or buff with a fine wheel).

NOTE: These sheets are not self-adhesive and will need a transfer adhesive applied.
