Testimonials

I want to express my deepest gratitude to the team at LMII.  When I started making guitars 26 years ago, my first guitar was made from wood that I ordered from the LMI catalog (there was no internet back then). Since then, the team at LMI has been nothing short of excellent!  The products and services are second to none.  My only regret is that I waited 26 years to say...THANK YOU!

Respectfully, 
Tony Vines

Black Heart Sassafras

BSBllkSassafrasStephenKinnairdZOOMAtherosperma Moschatum

Few woods on the market match the striking color contrasts found in this species. A native Tasmanian timber, the dark, variegated colors in the center of the log are caused by a fungus which fortunately, does not disturb the stability of the wood. The wood is light in weight, easy to work, bend and to finish. Tonally it falls into a category that might also include Myrtle, Walnut and Maple, so expect an open sound with nice separation and sparkling highs.

WARNING: The black stripes in Sassafras are caused by a fungus, therefore, the dust should not be inhaled. Care should be taken when sanding all woods as wood dust can have adverse health consequences.
