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."

Maple Electric Tops

Figured Maple is available in both flame and quilt figure; in premium, strong, good, or subtle grades; and in either top plate (Les Paul) thickness or drop-top thickness.

Our subtle grade has figure that may not appear very distinct in the white, but good staining or shading techniques can bring out a beautiful, soft moving affect. In the better grades, the wood will be distinctly figured in the white and with good contrast and figure throughout most of the pattern area. This is what you are used to seeing on vintage Les Paul™ models. The best grades have the highest degree of contrast and intensity of figure and are the hardest to find and acquire. The higher grade quilted tops are the rarest, and thus more expensive than even the finest flamed top. The highest grade tops of both the flamed and quilted tops really are something special and will give an instrument a dramatic, eye-popping appearance. See how LMI describes FIGURED WOOD.
