Product Details

Vivid natural color!
Natural paua shell is the most colorful abalone shell, with intense greens, blues and purples.

Each package contains enough random-length pieces for 15" of purfling.

Width: .063" (1.60mm)
Height: .050" (1.27mm)
Length: 15" (381mm) overall, in various-length pieces
Curved pieces inside diameter: 4.921" (125mm)

These purflings can be squared and mitered with a file. For gradual curves without noticeable joints, fit straight purflings into the glue-filled channel and break them to conform to the curve. Using this method, the 125mm-diameter curved pieces will also fit slightly larger or smaller curved channels. The charts below show how much purfling is needed for Dreadnought and Triple-O style guitars.

Excellent quality and color

The title says it all. With some other vendors I've had to file the ends of the curved pieces square before installing in the rosette, but these fit perfect.
