White Plastic Binding

About This Item

ABS plastic bindings are used by Gibson, Martin, Taylor, Fender and many other manufacturers. The material adheres well to wood and to itself.

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.

Trade Secrets!

Trade Secrets!

Coloring new binding to match the old stuff

We've watched Dan Erlewine repair this 1930s Kay over the previous 3 Trade Secrets. It's time to finish it up. Elliot John-Conry of EJC Guitars ages Dan's patch of new plastic binding so it blends in with the old binding around it. About the guitar in this video: This 1930s Kay Deluxe is a fixer-upper that Dan Erlewine repaired in order to sell. Now that it's in great shape again, maybe Dan'll keep it!

Scraping for sharp looking binding: here's how it's done!

The king of Gibson relic finishes: Tom Murphy is well known as Gibson's go-to guy for relic finishes: perfectly worn and age-cracked. Tom's business, Guitar Preservation, makes this a specialty. In this week's Trade Secret he shows us how to make and use a scraper for cleaning binding after spraying a sunburst.

Making a sharp-edged razor file for binding channels

Bad news: the binding on this old Gibson is crumbling to bits.
Worse news:that binding is the only thing holding the body together!
Dan Erlewine's plan is to replace the binding bit-by-bit, so the top doesn't fall off.

By grinding a new edge on a razor file, he creates a tool for cutting crisp square binding channels without a router.

White Plastic

(Customer's Reviews)

When sanding Rosewood ,the white binding will stain, but not deeply enough that scraping won't take care of it. It also remains soft for a while, as it is softened by the acrylic cement. I would let it sit at least 2 days before working it. Otherwise it looks good!


White Binding Experience

(Customer's Reviews)

The thickness of the plastic white binding at 0.090" was great for covering variations in the width of the overlap of my mandolin neck over my fretboard. Very easy to shape and work with the material. Downside was that the plastic was pretty slick and hard to get the glue to make it adhere to the ebony fretboard. Both surfaces needed a good coarse scuffing before I got my 2nd reglue and clamping effort to work.


As always First Class Stew-Mac product

(Customer's Reviews)

Stew-Mac in my humble opinion, sell only the best quality products on the market. I have ordered a full guitar part by part and didn't always order the most expense parts since I'm still learning and don't want to waist the money on something I may destroy. Every part has come to me in outstanding condition.
