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!"

Bloodwood Bridge Blank

 

Bloodwood is a bolder red color then either Paduak or Bois d' Rose but has the advantage that it does not shift to a warmer color over time. For this reason, it is often used as decorative binding and inlay by luthiers and furniture makers alike. It is remarkably dense (about as dense as the harder rosewoods such as Honduran and Brazilian) so it is well suited for other guitar applications as well.

Bloodwood bridge blanks meet the minimum dimensions for both steel string and classical bridges.

Our current stock of fingerboards and bridge blanks are not a good match. Getting quartersawn bloodwood is difficult and the colors of bloodwood are varied.
