Hello! My first-ever order arrived today. I had ordered some wood items and they are GORGEOUS! Smooth, perfectly flat!, and the woods themselves - with each one I pulled out, I just kept saying, WOW!, *WOW*!!!, over and over.  And thank you so much for the beautiful piece of East Indian Rosewood - it was described as "2nd grade" I believe, and I asked for a reddish color if possible, and I think this piece is absolutely stunning! These really exceeded my expectations! Thank you!"

Bindings & Purflings

When it comes to trimming your guitar, LMI offers a wide variety of exotic wood bindings, plastic bindings, wood strips and purflings. Many of our wood bindings are available with a Maple strip laminated to the binding, and there are backstrips to match for most. If you order binding with other woods (bridge, headplate, back and sides) we do our best to match all the pieces.

In addition to the offerings in this section, be sure to look at our colored veneers, inlay materials, binding tools, and binding adhesives and tape:
