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!"

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 brace sets are shaped from quartersawn vertical grain Sitka Spruce. The bottoms of the braces are flat. The pieces 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. The braces are not scalloped as we feel the builder should scallop the braces while tapping the top until the ideal tap tone is achieved.
