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.

GREAT Customer Service1

(Customer's Reviews)

I received my order and the pair of purling strips arrived broken. I was disappointed but a quick email to Stew Mac explaining the situation was followed by an equally quick response apologizing and promising a replacement right away - which arrived a couple of days later! High quality products with great customer service. Thanks!

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.
