There are three
mainstays to my business: superior sound, excellent craftsmanship and
customer satisfaction. I take great pains to develop the sound
characteristics of each instrument while using all my skills to
produce a very high quality product. Your satisfaction is
guaranteed. CMI Guitars are fully warranted for materials and
selected from the best available. I prefer to use Sitka Spruce for
acoustic guitar tops but have also used Engleman Spruce and Western
Red Cedar. Woods for guitar bodies are usually Mahogany, Walnut, Maple or Birch. I also have East Indian Rosewood, Sapelle and Bloodwood. I can access just about any wood available around the
world if you want something more exotic. No veneers are used in the
bodies, only solid woods. Ebony is usually my selection for fret
boards and bridges but other woods can be substituted on request.
Bone is the material of choice for saddles, nuts and most bridge
pins. A truly double acting truss rod is installed in the neck of
each acoustic guitar.
Instruments may be
made to order based on your selection of woods, inlay materials and
other accessories including electronic pickups. The price will vary
accordingly. I am always happy to discuss your ideas and requirements
for a personalized instrument.
Thanks for your
