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."

Pre-slotted/Pre-radiused Fingerboards

LMI stocks a good selection of pre-slotted and pre-radiused boards ready to ship. These fingerboards are not tapered, allowing you more leeway in your design. The boards are CNC slotted with a nut slot offset to correct for fret saw blade kerf for compensation purposes so that the bridge edge of the slot is at true zero. This method of slotting works well for most builders. To bring the breakaway point of the nut slot closer to the bridge, it is easy to file away the amount of material desired. This method will not allow a zero fret.
The slots on our pre-serviced boards follow the radius. The 1/8" Fender nut slot is flat to accommodate the nut. 7/8" of wood is left behind the nut on the SFB5, SFB14 and SFB15.
