Testimonials

I want to express my deepest gratitude to the team at LMII.  When I started making guitars 26 years ago, my first guitar was made from wood that I ordered from the LMI catalog (there was no internet back then). Since then, the team at LMI has been nothing short of excellent!  The products and services are second to none.  My only regret is that I waited 26 years to say...THANK YOU!

Respectfully, 
Tony Vines

Back and Side Services

SHOPBackJoining200Our LMI shop offers various service combinations for backs and sides
including sanding/joining/backstrip insertion.

Sanding thicknesses:

  • Joined back - 0.095"
  • Unjoined back halves - 0.100"
  • Side bending thickness - 0.090"

Please Note: With our SVBI backstrip service, we sandwich your backstrip between the plates when we join them. We do not inlay a backstrip.  If you prefer to inlay a backstrip, have your back joined and sanded to thickness, then route a groove on the centerline to inlay the backstrip. 

See our backstrips.

*Thicknesses may vary 5%.
Allow 3 or 4 days for sanding services, and 1 week for joining and sanding or backstrip installation.
