Testimonials

“I have seldom had
experience with
a company with
such careful attention
to customer
satisfaction.
Although I am sure
my orders are
smaller than most,
your products have
been of the highest
quality and your
responsiveness to
my special requests
have always been
treated with
respect and
timeliness. 
My thanks to
all of your staff."

Slotting a fingerboard using our precise CNC saw
(computer numerically controlled)

We are here to help.

LMI understands that not everyone building a stringed instrument has the skills or tools required for some of the more difficult tasks. We are here to help. We can also assist in helping small manufacturers with repetitive tasks like fingerboard slotting and radiusing. Feel free to call us for quantity discounts on shop services.

You can start with your major components more completely prepared without the drudgery, sweat and sawdust from sanding, or the risk of damage or inaccuracy as in side bending and fingerboard slotting. We take the risks of damage to the raw materials and only deliver to you a perfectly machined part. This range of quality custom services is unique among all of the suppliers of guitar parts.

We can slot any of our fingerboards precisely to any scale – we are the only company offering such a wide choice. We can accurately, and professionally, bend your sides to one of many popular shapes – including cutaways. You can have your tops and backs joined or your rosette inlayed as well as many other shop services.

Our standard shop services can be added to wood you already own if the wood meets our size criteria. In addition, we can perform custom resaw work. You can find information on these services under Custom Shop Services.
