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.

Wow what a fit for a Martin dreadnought...

By

I am building a dreadnought with a Martin profile and this pre-bent herringbone laid up like I bent it for it. It came at breakneck speed I am greatly impressed by your shipping and order processing! Why only four stars then? Well it came broken. But don't get worked up as drop of super glue and some tape and it is as good as new. But this could have simply been avoided by using a heavy piece of stiff cardboard and some low tack tape instead of just throwing it into a box with wadded paper. Plus I bought a set of cutter bearings and a router bit that was thrown in with it to bounce around on it. I am surprised that it all wasn't in pieces. I know you have those items why didn't you use them? If you want 5 stars start using this technique. Or was it just pawning off the repair to me?

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!

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.

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.

Although the pieces have been broken on a few occasions, it doesn't matter much. The pieces always fit my rebate with little fuss. I had to bend this stuff back in the day, and it does take time.
