“Dear Sir, A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with sitka top. I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce. The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirey by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a driss press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them. It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career. Many Thanks. ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”
LMI carries a wide variety of wood end pins for attaching a strap to the end of the guitar. These match our wood bridge pins, which are sold separately.
We also sell metal strap buttons (with a screw) for use at the end of the guitar or at the heel.
WOOD END PINS Our beautiful wood endpins are available in Boxwood, Ebony, Indian Rosewood and Tintul(Imli or Tamarind)— a date tree found in India that is almost indistinguishable from Indian Rosewood in a bridge pin. Many of the pins have abalone, MOP, parisian eye, Boxwood or Ebony dot accents.
