Testimonials

“I keep meaning to send an email and let you know that I got the prem. Indian Rosewood and was very pleased. You all at LMII have always given me great reason for trust in doing business with you. You have always treated me well and in a prompt and professional fashion. You have always helped with any problems that I might. have. Your staff is knowledgeable and professional and the materials have been great. You guys run the type of business that makes me look for things I need that I can get from you. If that doesn't work (look for things I might need in the future). Thank you for giving me a place where I can buy my materials with confidence.”

Purflex Purflings & Backstrips

PURFLEXDwendeCeltic500
 

 
IMPORTANT: Never rout for your backstrip or purflings 
before you receive them as dimensions can vary +/- 10%.

These patented innovative and beautiful Purflex products – created by Bruce Petros of Petros Guitars – are flexible, real wood purflings with matching backstrips. The purflings can be installed on any curve, in any direction, easily and elegantly. If you’re concerned about using shell due to Fish and Wildlife restrictions on international shipping, Purflex is your answer. Patent #8,138,404

Note: These strips are shorter than standard purflings, so measure carefully when ordering.

Recipe for black epoxy mixture for Purflex strips:

  • Use 2 parts Zpoxy to 1 part powdered tempera (or 1 part resin, 1 part hardener and 1 part tempera). 
  • Mix well and apply as described in the installation instructions below.
  • Do not use lampblack powder/solution to color the epoxy!
