Bent Herringbone Purfling, Set of 2

About This Item

Classic soundboard trim for Dreadnought!
These traditional purflings are bent to fit a Dreadnought soundboard, saving you time and work.

A distinguishing feature of iconic D-28 Martin guitars, classic Herringbone trim adds a signature vintage touch. The bent Herringbone purfling we supply is laminated with black fiber and natural unstained "white" wood. Set of 2.

Approximate dimensions:
.140" wide x 1/16" x .065" thick (3.56mm x 1.65mm)

TIP: Dimensions are approximate. For proper fit, wood purflings should be measured directly before routing the channels on your instrument.

See our detailed instructions on routing a "stairstep" channel around the soundboard, gluing the purflings and their surrounding bindings in place, and scraping them flush.

Also available: Unbent Herringbone Purfling and Herringbone Soundhole Rosette.

Herringbone for Dreadnought Guitars

(Customer's Reviews)

Have used this herringbone for over 5 years. It saves having to bend the straight pieces, and for the time saved I feel like I save money.


Herringbone Purfling

(Customer's Reviews)

I used the Herringbone Purfling on my 000 build project. Since it came prebent for a dreadnought, I reshaped it by using a small steamer from an auto parts store, some pushpins and the cardboard 000 shape that came with the kit. The steamer worked great to soften the purfling mostly in the waist area. It didn't take much steam to make the material pliable. I then molded it around the cardboard 000 shape. The push pins held it in place until it cooled and set up in the new shape. I have mounted it on the body, and it looks great. I am really pleased with the results.
