“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.

Stainless Steel Fretwire

FRETWIREStainlessSteel400LMI carries stainless steel fretwire in our most popular sizes. More and more builders are using stainless because of its resistance to wear and its playability.  It is much more difficult to use than other types of fretwire due its hardness. Our experience shows that it is much harder on your tools. There are 2 schools of thought on how to combat this: 1) Buy less expensive tools, and go through more of them. Or 2) Buy expensive tools so they'll last longer.
