“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. THANK YOU!"
The compression rod is made from 3/16" stock and is wrapped in high quality heat-shrink tubing. The adjustment is accomplished by tightening the Allen nut on the threaded end of the rod. The rod is held immobile at the opposite end by means of a right-angle bend. The wrapping prevents rattling and insures a good snug fit without binding in the slot.
