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."

Buzz-Off® Fret Leveling Kit

FRETTINGBuzzOffFretLevelingKitFLK700

 

The fret leveling kit, designed by John S. Bogdanovich, is composed of a Pearwood sanding block shaped to fit frets, both a 3" and a 2" straight solid steel pin and steel wool. The pins are used to check flatness of the frets relative to one another. The 2" pin is for the upper frets where they are closer together. Place the pin across three frets and try to rock it back and forth. A clicking sound will reveal a high fret. Mask off the fingerboard with tape and lightly sand down the fret using the Pearwood sanding block. Begin with medium grit sandpaper and work toward finers grits as desired. Recheck for flatness with the pin and repeat if necessary. When flat, polish with the steel wood included. Repeat up the fingerboard.
