Testimonials

“I really appreciate the extra mile you guys are going to make sure your customers are satisfied. I have a degree in business and I've studied all that stuff about how companies are doing their best to keep their customer satisfied through marketing and incentives, but I can't think of another company (in any field) that makes me as satisfied as you guys do. I'm sure there are some places that sell materials here in Japan, but even with extra cost of shipping and customs fee, I prefer to buy from LMI, because I can trust LMI's service and quality of materials. No marketing and incentives can match the solid good service and I'm a very happy LMI customer.”

Figured Wood terms
 

While our topwoods come mainly from North America and Germany, our backs and sides are truly international. From African Blackwood and Indian Rosewood to Maple from here in our own backyard, we have the broadest and best hardwood selection anywhere.

MATCHED SETS
When you order a back and side set you get just that, a bookmatched back set and a bookmatched set of sides. After grading we match many of them up before hand in order to assure consistency. Just like our soundboards, we have two sizes classical and steel string.

We seek out the best material and know that people are looking for both straight grained and even color as well as something outrageous. Let us know and hopefully we can pick out just what you need.
