Testimonials

"....My friend and I have been building guitars in my high school woodworking class over the course of this school year. This will be the last order we place for this project, and I wanted to say that we have found your website, products, and customer service to be extremely useful. When my friend encountered some issues with bending the sides he purchased, he emailed your company to ask for advice, and, very quickly, received very helpful advice."

Diospyros ebenum

Indian Ebony is less plentiful than West African Ebony and so you are less likely to find it in the market place, though it is commonly used for violin and other bowed instrument fittings. The wood is about 8% lower in weight than African Ebony, but has equal (excellent) compression strength and is similarly stable. We are assured of responsible harvest practices with third party oversight. Because we have not carried it long, we are not certain that the supply of this fine wood will be steady in the future.

Indian Ebony is notorious for its mineral spots and our fingerboards are no exception. These spots are easy to camouflage using a number of products available at LMI.

We recommend using one of the following products

NOTE: Boards designated steel string will accommodate a standard steel string guitar, but have defects outside the pattern area. These are not appropriate for classical guitars.
