Binding Tape

About This Item

First choice for binding work! High-tack adhesive and stiffer backing make this the strongest paper tape we've found for securing bindings while the glue dries.

3/4" x 60-yard (19mm x 55-meter) roll.

Not recommended for use on vintage or delicate finishes.

Our binding tape has a strong adhesive—good for applying pressure, but be cautious about using tape on soft top woods like spruce. With soft woods, first stick our binding tape to a cotton t-shirt to give it less tack before applying it. This will help reduce the possibility of any damage when you go to remove it.

Once the glue is dry, remove any tape slowly and gently—pulling at an angle and lightly rubbing it with your index finger. Warming the tape will also help it lift away easily without pulling out wood fibers.

For more information, see our How to Install Bindings article.

New Binding Tape is awful. PLEASE bring the old stuff back.

(Customer's Reviews)

As a professional luthier, StewMac Binding tape was a revelation when I first discovered it, and we've been using it at my workshop for almost a decade.

Its been a staple resource for our work and one of the simplest and most useful supplies a luthier can have in his arsenal.

However our latest purchase of binding tape was markedly different, and its certainly not the same product we've been buying for years.

This new stuff is nowhere near as effective at sticking - yet somehow leaves stubborn residue all over anything you try to use it on and also seems much worse in terms of the risk of pulling grain in woods like wenge.

Its also nowhere near as rigid. - The old binding tape was stiffer and had absolutely no give or flex. This stuff is much more flimsy.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE go back to the old stuff!!!


supplier change?

I have bought binding tape for 5 years now. It has always been great but the last batch (supplier change?) leaves glue residue on the guitar after sitting one night. A LOT of it. whats up? The previous stuff was great.

This Stuff is Super Glue on Steroids !! 5-Stars !!! I would not trust any binding project to anything other than Stew Mac Binding Tape. Holds even the trickiest of bindings down.
