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!"

Wood binding serves to protect the corners of the instrument as well as seal the end grain of the soundboard and back. Many of our bindings have matching backstrips. 

Rocklite® is a revolutionary and totally environmentally friendly approach to tonewoods for musical instruments. It looks and sounds like real ebony or rosewood. The Ebano is very black unlike most ebony available today.

Rocklite® is an engineered composite produced from eco-friendly, readily available wood species. LMI has done loads of testing on this material (see photos) and it performs well. It cuts, routs and sands easily. If you're looking for a super-black alternate to rosewood or ebony, Rocklite is for you!

IMPORTANT SHIPPING NOTE: Due to the recent CITES convention ruling we are no longer able to ship Rosewood parts, including Indian Rosewood, outside of the U.S. but we have a limited selection of Indian Rosewood items warehoused in Canada for delivery to Canadian addresses. Look for the Maple leaf next to the applicable parts. Canadian HST and GST taxes will apply. These items will be shipped separately from the rest of the order.
