“I have seldom had
experience with
a company with
such careful attention
to customer
Although I am sure
my orders are
smaller than most,
your products have
been of the highest
quality and your
responsiveness to
my special requests
have always been
treated with
respect and
My thanks to
all of your staff."

At LMI, we are not just interested in beautiful and exotic woods. The internal components of the guitar can be just as important to the completed instrument. We offer only the highest quality brace material in 7 species, time-saving back joint reinforcement strips in both Cedar and Spruce and 13 types of kerfing (also called linings) in varying sizes and profiles.
