Testimonials

“I recently purchased a beautiful fingerboard from you and now I am thinking of grabbing fretwire from you as well. Unfortunately I'm cheap and lazy and find myself here asking if it is possible to pay more to have your fretwire radiused before it is sent? You guys would be the coolest ever. No matter what the outcome, I will be sending more business your way from here in Maine. Hoping for good news! Thank you!"

Instrument makers glue

Rarely, do we receive a sales order here at LMI that does not include our Instrument Makers Glue. Perfect for any area of the guitar where wood is bonded to wood, this polyvinyl glue is the only one on the market made especially for instrument makers. Because this glue dries hard, it is said to provide a sound transference medium superior to other glues.

FG/FGG features:
  • Sets up in 15-30 minutes
  • Dries transparent
  • Water-resistant
  • Great for repairs - softens with heat
  • 9-15 month shelf life of if stored between 65° to 85° (the glue will last even longer if agitated from time to time and the air space in the bottle is kept to a minimum).
STORAGE: We suggest storing the glue in the house and not in your shop if it is not climate controlled. This glue is no good if it is frozen which can occur from time to time when shipping in the winter. If you live in a cold climate, we suggest you wait for the late spring to early fall to order it. If you believe your glue has been frozen in transit (the viscosity may give this away) request a replacement bottle. We will replace the bottle once, but if frozen again, we ask you to wait for warmer weather to get a further replacement. If it smells sweet it's good.

A general rule of thumb:
If it smells sour use it as a household glue, but not on instruments.
