“Dear Sir,
A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with sitka top.
I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce.
The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirey by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a driss press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them.
It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career.
Many Thanks.
ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”

Truss Rods/Neck Parts

TRUSSRODInstalled750

We have our truss rods custom made for us to our specifications which we have developed over the years with much input from our customers. With three styles of 1-way rods (TRS, TRST, & Compression) and 2 styles of dual-action rods (TRSD & Martinstyle), each coming in several lengths, we are sure we have one that will work for your instrument. Call us to inquire about larger quantities or custom lengths.

— All of the truss rods we carry are made, inspected and tested in the USA, with the exception of the TRMR made in Japan. —

PLEASE NOTE: Once installed a truss rod can be extremely difficult to replace or repair therefore, carefully inspect each rod you receive. Put each rod in a vice and turn the nut beyond its normal range of adjustment (turn it both ways if it is a two-way rod). LMI will replace or issue a refund for any defective truss rod, but will not cover any related costs beyond the price of the truss rod itself. Modification of the rod in any way voids our warranty.
