Testimonials

“Thanks for continuing to strive for excellence in the many services you provide. The website looks great. The more streamlined look is less distracting and I think will make navigating the sight even better!

I have been using LMII as my main wood/parts supplier for almost 5 years now. LMII not only provides excellent products, but has been a link for me to gain access to a tremendous amount of expert knowledge and instruction on acoustic guitar building. Thanks for striving so hard to connect the dots for newer luthiers like myself to be able to benefit from the hard earned experience of the pros. I am now starting on my tenth guitar and have sold 6 of them. With each build, I strive to venture to new personal ground and it comforts me to know that LMII is always there and I can depend upon you guys for whatever I need, every step of the way."

Tigrillo

BSTigrilloWITG450Amburana cearensis

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.
