Testimonials

“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!"

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.
