“It's nice to know that
I have a good
source for quality
guitar wood as
well as guitar parts
fabrication, such as
LMI's fingerboard
slotting service. 
As I am only set up
to slot 650mm
fingerboards, you
guys have saved my
butt on making me
several odd scale
lengths recently! 
I want you to know
that I appreciate
you guys and the
wood and services
that you supply
to me, a small,
independent luthier. 
Your fine fingerboard
slotting service
saves me a lot of
time and trouble,
for which I am grateful. 
THANK YOU!"

Gouge for Carving Heel

CHISELSGougeHeelGCS25at400

 

With a number 5 sweep, and a 1" blade, this is a tool that Mario Passos from Rio de Janeiro insisted that we reintroduce. Mario said that for him it cut the task of carving the heel in half. Made of the same excellent high-carbon, hand-forged steel as in our fine chisel, this gouge takes and holds an edge like no other. A hardness of 62-63C Rockwell usually means brittleness. But with these blades toughness is built in. Mounted with our large, comfortable "Rosewood-like" handle, the gouge can be gripped with both hands for really leaning into the work.
