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...

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 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 Daptone is achieved.
