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!"

DR Handmade Strings

 

DR handmade strings are the only guitar strings made in America, one at a time. DR™ uses a careful process that keeps the core wire under high tension equal to, or greater than the string tension at concert pitch. They're made with very high pressure while holding the wrapped material by hand—the core material does not have to be soft to avoid breakage on high-speed machinery. This actually means that more metal is compressed into the string than with equivalent strings from other manufacturers. The DR™ .042" string contains more metal than a comparable .044".
