Just wanted to say that the quality of all the products LMI has sent me is awesome!

I was shocked at the outstanding quality of the wood sent with my kit. All the wood in my kit is stunning! I can't wait to work on this project.  The quality of the services is top notch and the tools I bought from LMI are top grade.

I am glad LMI sets a high standard in quality all around. I look forward to this project and many more knowing that a place like LMI exists with these standards.

I work in a manufacturing environment so I know the work it takes to keep such a high standard. I know LMI couldn't do it without having good people doing the daily grind. Please let your co-workers and shop staff know that I said thanks for the work they do.

I hope LMI continues this tradition of high quality, it can be hard to find a place that values a high standard.

Great job
and thanks!

Plan, 1963 Hernández Y Aguado, No. 249, classical guitar


PLAN1963AguadoClassicalCourtnallPL19at1000copyrightThis is a lightly built, Spruce top guitar with characteristically even sound over the whole range. A similar instrument, made two years later in 1965 was played by John Williams on several recordings. He then sold it to Bream, who also recorded with it (photographs of the guitar are featured on their record covers). This is an interesting guitar—a large instrument, but lightly constructed. Drawing by Roy Courtnall Summerfield.
