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!"

Heart Rimu

BSHeartRimuWHR600

Heart Rimu is native to New Zealand, growing throughout the North and South islands. It’s growth is widespread, but harvesting (especially of the very large trees, which approach 150 ft. tall) is strictly regulated. Warm beige and gold colors are accented by reddish vertical line patterns. The density and tap-tone are similar to Koa. It is non-porous and bends, glues and finishes exceptionally well.
