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.

Amazingly easy to use. This was my first time working with binding. I have great confidence now for future builds.

Stew-Mac binding and Weld -on a perfect combo

Great Stuff and economical. Keep in mind that weld-on is a solvent glue and works by attacking the binding. Not all glues are a good match - stick with this combo and you'll be happy.

Decent size binding

Suitably tall and thick for the body binding LP style job. I couldn't find any other binding of this size and it was just what I wanted. good value

coming up short...

The binding is of excellent quality. The problem is, even buying 2 sets of binding, I came up 2 inches short in redoing my 1954 Epiphone Zephyr cutaway although the Stewmac description said it was enough to do a guitar. Now I face ordering that one piece (5777) and paying the high handling fee and then having an extra 58 inches. Exasperating- I mean I used all of what I got and still came up short. I surely couldn't be the first. What a drag.

We're sorry to hear you came up short with our binding. We'll send out another strip to complete your project, no charge.

Friggin love this stuff!

Lengths are perfect, price not bad, and goes on nicely especially if using the Stew-Mac router bit and bearings. I typically sand to flush it to the instrument surface then lightly scrape it to bring out the pure whites and blacks. Beautiful material!
