“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!"
Our friends in Peru have found another spectacular tonewood to add to our eco-friendly offerings. The allure of this wood is obvious – striking, sharp stripe patterns and rich gold color. What might not be apparent in the photo (but will show through dramatically under finish) is a uniquely three dimensional ribbon texture in the grain. The wood is porous but rigid. All sets are well-sawn and the figure is strong on everything we’ve received. Tonally, expect a clear, rich tone with the punchiness of good Mahogany.
