Testimonials

I've been buying products from LMI since the 70's, long before the web was around. 
The selection and quality has always been superior, and the pricing reasonable! There are other places I can go to buy materials, but none that I trust as much...

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.
