"I’m about 10 tops into a stack of 40 cedar tops I got from you, and whenever I want to start a new guitar, I just walk over and pick a top off the stack, and start building.
They are all that great! I don’t have to dink around with the pattern, or select the “best" one: I just start building. I love that!  I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your high standards, and what a pleasure it is to do business with you!"


Rosette Inlay Material

Wood rosettes employ the art of marquetry; tastefully arranging wood veneers into patterns or pictures. Here we have a variety of woods that have enough dense figure and/or dramatic color that they make great candidates for creating marquetry rosettes - as well as end grafts, heel caps and headplates. They can, of course, be combined with binding strips, headplates, shell and colored veneers -all of which can be found under one roof at LMI.
