Testimonials

“I'm doing some wood binding today, and I pulled out a few pieces of curly maple I've had for a while that I bought from you. It never ceases to amaze me how LMI, above all my other suppliers, just consistently gives me materials that never fail to surpass my expectations. No matter what any picture on your site looks like, whatever I get is always better. Really appreciate it. I know that you supply many other people far beyond my volume and talent, but I am definitely a customer for life!"

Ishpingo

 Amburana cearensis

Ishpingo is a stunning wood from Peru that is virtually unknown in the lutherie community, but passed all our tests for stability - and it bent easily, despite its dramatic grain. Most importantly, it is lightweight and has a round, present tap tone that, while similar to Mahogany, exceeds it in volume, crispness, and complexity. All sets feature deep, three-dimensional ribbon figure. The color lands somewhere between gold and light amber. It is porous but treated with the proper fillers and a high gloss finish you can expect a surface of great depth and chatoyance. The icing on the cake with this fine wood is that is harvested with great care for the species, its environment, and the Peruvian communities that helped bring it to market.
