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!

Sapele Electric Tops

Entandrophragma cylindricum

Sapele is a little heavier and a good alternative to Honduran Mahogany but finer textured. Colors range from light pink to medium brown to reddish brown. The figure is the characteristic stripe resulting from interlocked grain.
