Just wanted to say that the quality of all the products LMI has sent me is awesome!
I was shocked at the outstanding quality of the wood sent with my kit. All the wood in my kit is stunning! I can't wait to work on this project. The quality of the services is top notch and the tools I bought from LMI are top grade.
I am glad LMI sets a high standard in quality all around. I look forward to this project and many more knowing that a place like LMI exists with these standards.
I work in a manufacturing environment so I know the work it takes to keep such a high standard. I know LMI couldn't do it without having good people doing the daily grind. Please let your co-workers and shop staff know that I said thanks for the work they do.
I hope LMI continues this tradition of high quality, it can be hard to find a place that values a high standard.

VACUUM SHEETING Vacuum sheeting is sold by the foot in either a 36" or 47" width. (The average size needed for a brace clamping fixture is approx. 32" x 32")
A quantity of 1 equals a 1' x 47" or a 1' x 36" sheet. A quantity of 2 equals a 2' x 47" or 2' x 36" sheet, etc.
Important Note: Care should be taken whenever using any rubber or synthetic product on a finished guitar. Rubber and vinyl react badly with finishes. We have found that neoprene is relatively safe when used on a lacquer finish, but care should still be taken. Make sure you finish is fully or almost fully cured, and never leave the neoprene in contact with the finished product any longer than is necessary.
