“Dear Sir,
A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with sitka top.
I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce.
The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirey by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a driss press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them.
It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career.
Many Thanks.
ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”

Neck woods: Carved neck, Greven Guitars
LMI offers a broad selection of materials for instrument necks. Listed below are a variety of woods and configurations (from blanks to pre-carved necks) to be used for different styles of neck construction. Our blanks are cut from wood especially selected, dried and dimensioned for necks—not your average lumber. Each species has been selected over time for neck construction because of its strength, stability, and machineability.
