Testimonials

I've been buying products from LMI since the 70's, long before the web was around. 
The selection and quality has always been superior, and the pricing reasonable! There are other places I can go to buy materials, but none that I trust as much...

Richlite Bridge Blanks

Richlite Bridge SmRichlite® is a versatile composite that was traditionally used as an industrial tooling material. The benefits of using it for fingerboards and bridge blanks are numerous. 

  • Market tested – it has been in use on factory guitars with good results
  • No shrinkage
  • Less chip out during machining
  • Machines with standard tools
  • Black – need we say more?
  • Once polished, has the look of ebony
  • Made in the USA
  • Made from environmentally certified material

LMI has tested this material extensively. We have machined beautiful bridges from it as well as jigs and fixtures. 

The Richlite we offer is produced from 100% post-consumer waste paper pulp – recycled paper mostly from home and office recycling in the mid-west!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Before gluing Richlite up, it’s important that you abrade it with 80-100 grit sandpaper for best adhesion.
