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."

HEADPLATEcontouredBaranikHeadplates, also known as peghead veneers or faceplates, are often selected for purely aesthetic reasons, though they do serve the purpose of reinforcing the scarf joint. We carry headplates to match nearly all of our back and side woods. For an illustration of most of the headplate woods you are interested in, check out the photos listed under "back and sides". On the other hand, to obtain inexpensive samples of our back and sides woods, to see the woods first hand and present to your clients, consider purchasing our Sample Headplate and Back & Side Kit.

When you buy an Indian Rosewood headplate with an Indian Rosewood back and side set on the same order, we will do our best to match all the woods in that order. As with all of our woods, if you are interested in a particular look, please say so in the 'special instructions' box on the checkout page.

We also carry veneers to make a laminate "sandwich" In the picture of Baranik Guitars headstock, Baranik has taken the extra step of bending his headplate for a unique contoured headstock. Note Gotoh contour tuning machines!
