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!"

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.
