Classic Dreadnought soundboard trim.
A distinguishing feature of iconic style-28 Martin® guitars.
Classic Herringbone trim has become a signature vintage touch for acoustic guitar soundboards. The handsome Herringbone purfling we supply is laminated with black fiber and natural unstained "white" wood, in straight strips.
.140" x 1/16" x 32" (3.56mm x 1.59mm x 812.80mm)
Two strips are needed for a Dreadnought or smaller soundboard.
TIP: Dimensions are approximate. For proper fit, wood purflings should be measured directly before routing the channels on your instrument.
See Articles for our detailed instructions on bending Herringbone purflings, routing a "stairstep" channel around the soundboard, gluing the purflings and their surrounding bindings in place, and scraping them flush.
Also available: time-saving bent Herringbone Dreadnought Purfling and Herringbone Soundhole Rosette.
