I want to express my deepest gratitude to the team at LMII. When I started making guitars 26 years ago, my first guitar was made from wood that I ordered from the LMI catalog (there was no internet back then). Since then, the team at LMI has been nothing short of excellent! The products and services are second to none. My only regret is that I waited 26 years to say...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.
