“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.

Pickguard Material


Pre-cut shapes • Sheet Stock • Removeable & More!

LMI is proud to offer the outstanding Tor-tis™ line of pickguards developed by luthier John Greven. These unique pickguards accurately recreate the beautiful, old tortoise pickguards of yore. They are made in-house and we show you a photo of every one, so you can pick the pickguard (shape/sheet) you like.

For a less expensive alternative to the Tor-tis™ line with similar patterns, check out the nice tortoise-colors under Martin-style pickguards. The clear Kling-On removeable pickguards are a great option if you want an unobtrusive guard that is non-reactive to your guitar finish. 

We also carry a wide variety of pickguard sheets for creating your own unique shape. Choose from Tor-tis™, vinyl, or celluloid.
