Hello! My first-ever order arrived today. I had ordered some wood items and they are GORGEOUS! Smooth, perfectly flat!, and the woods themselves - with each one I pulled out, I just kept saying, WOW!, *WOW*!!!, over and over.  And thank you so much for the beautiful piece of East Indian Rosewood - it was described as "2nd grade" I believe, and I asked for a reddish color if possible, and I think this piece is absolutely stunning! These really exceeded my expectations! Thank you!"

Preshaped Braces

Our preshaped brace kits are made to match the specific LMI plan referenced in the line descriptions. They could also be used for generic guitars similar to our plans. The braces are shaped from quartersawn vertical grain Sitka Spruce. The bottom of the braces are flat and and need to be cut to length, after which they can easily be contoured to your desired back and soundboard radius using a radiused dish and sandpaper (SPH50). The braces are not scalloped as we feel the builder should scallop the braces while tapping the top until the ideal taptone is achieved.
