Testimonials

“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."

Acacia Melanoxylon

Known as Australian Blackwood to many because of the tree's bark, this not-to-distant cousin of the Koa tree (Koa is itself an Acacia) offers many of the features of the popular Hawaiian wood. An excellent alternative to the Rosewoods, it has a luminescence and depth similar to Mahogany. The tap tone is roughly the same as Koa, and some say it makes a better sounding guitar. Though the tree grows well in our own region of northern California and many other places such as Africa and India, the best sets are imported from Australia where this wood has been a mainstay for most of the fine builders there. Other adherents include classical and flamenco guitar builder Kenny Hill and steel string builders Mike Baranik and McPherson Guitars.

NOTE: Black Acacia with grades good and below may have small blemishes in the pattern (small knots or very subtle spikes).
