“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.

Inlay Materials

“Fishing at Twilight” inlay by Grit Laskin


Inlay adds beauty,
distinction and individuality
to your instrument.

LMI carries an endless variety of  materials that can be used for inlay. Everything from exotic woods and tortoise pickguard sheets to reconstituted stone, shell and Abalam® products. We also carry many fine inlay tools and instructional materials.

Due to United States Fish and Wildlife Service restrictions,
we are unable to ship shell outside the U.S.A.
