Our ABS plastic bindings are 65" long — a single piece will reach completely around a guitar body. These bindings are manufactured with smooth edges, not rough-sawn from sheets, for closer size tolerances.

#5782 extra-tall .565" binding is the right size for Les Paul® and similar guitar tops.

To laminate bindings, you can sandwich them using our Binding Laminator and acetone. Measure carefully before you rout the channels, and almost any combination can be installed.

In the example illustration,
A  is a white/black/white/black laminate of .010" strips,
B  combines .020" black and .040" white, and
C  uses .020" white and .020" black, installed sideways as edge trim.

For easy installation, we recommend Weld-On Cement.

Binding tape or rubber binding bands will hold the bindings in place while the glue dries.

Use a scraper blade to trim the glued bindings flush to the surrounding wood.

White Plastic binding

This is an excellent product. In combination with Stewart-MacDonald's binding laminator, you can make some very nice bindings. It cements nicely with acetone and scrapes easily. It's recommended.

I have to be honest and say that I think this "new" (in relative terms to several years ago) binding is really a disappointment. Back when we got the binding "pre-laminated" it was excellent. I believe that I am doing everything as well as I can but my results with this binding is far less appealing than the old stuff.

I am laminating the binding with Acetone. I let it set for a day or so then I soften it in boiling water. When I try to bend it around the scroll of the mandolin it either kinks (not soft enough) or de-laminates when I make it hotter. Previously, I enjoyed binding my mandolins, now I hate doing it. Just because of the material difference.
