“Thanks for continuing to strive for excellence in the many services you provide. The website looks great. The more streamlined look is less distracting and I think will make navigating the sight even better!

I have been using LMII as my main wood/parts supplier for almost 5 years now. LMII not only provides excellent products, but has been a link for me to gain access to a tremendous amount of expert knowledge and instruction on acoustic guitar building. Thanks for striving so hard to connect the dots for newer luthiers like myself to be able to benefit from the hard earned experience of the pros. I am now starting on my tenth guitar and have sold 6 of them. With each build, I strive to venture to new personal ground and it comforts me to know that LMII is always there and I can depend upon you guys for whatever I need, every step of the way."

DR™ Handmade Strings


DR™ handmade strings are the only guitar strings made in America, one at a time. DR™ uses a careful process that keeps the core wire under high tension equal to, or greater than the string tension at concert pitch. They're made with very high pressure while holding the wrap material by hand—the core material does not have to be soft to avoid breakage on high speed machinery. This actually means that more metal is compressed into the string than with equivalent strings from other manufacturers. The DR™ .042" string contains more metal than a comparable .044".
