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.


Example binding layout
(see illustration at right)
A  Laminate strips of .010" alternating black and white
B  Combination .020" black and .040" white
C  Use .020" white and .020" black, installed sideways as edge trim

Laminate bindings
You can sandwich strips together using our Binding Laminator and acetone. Measure carefully before you rout the channels, and almost any combination can be installed.

Learn more from our free online article How to Install Bindings:
•  Rout channels
•  Binding joints
•  Shape binding for fingerboards
•  Bind the body and peghead
•  Finishing over binding

For easy binding installation, we recommend StewMac Bind-ALL Guitar Binding Glue.

Binding tape or rubber clamping 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.

Its consistent with no color variations. Bends nicely with a little heat (heat gun.)

Just what I needed.

What can I say? It's binding. Does what it's supposed to. Handles well, looks great.

4.0

Good Quality, but be aware of the thickness.

By

Verified Buyer


I appreciate the consistency of this binding. It is ready to use without any cleanup of edges required. It comes in long lengths which I like. I scuff the glue side with sandpaper to give it some tooth for the glue to grab onto.
My only criticism is that the .060" binding can run .055" which can be a problem if you need the thickness to match an accurate ledge and it tends to look a bit thin after it is cleaned up.
