“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!"
Sipo is from the same family of Mahogany-like woods from Africa that includes Sapele. It is one of the most promising Mahogany substitutes for use as a neck wood and for electric blanks and it is already in common use by one of the larger high-end electric guitar makers. Here we offer it for backs and sides. The color is a little richer than most Sapele and it is a bit more porous. These sets also show more dramatic ribbon figure than most common Sapele and feature a lively bees-wing figure also, which is rare in this price range.
