Our ABS plastic bindings are 65" long — a single piece will reach completely around a guitar body. These bindings are manufactured with smooth edges, not rough-sawn from sheets, for closer size tolerances.

#5792 extra-tall .565" binding is the right size for Les Paul® and similar guitar tops.

To laminate bindings, you can sandwich them using our Binding Laminator and acetone. Measure carefully before you rout the channels, and almost any combination can be installed.

In the example illustration,
A  is a white/black/white/black laminate of .010" strips,
B  combines .020" black and .040" white, and
C  uses .020" white and .020" black, installed sideways as edge trim.

For easy installation, we recommend Weld-On Cement.

Binding tape or rubber binding bands will hold the bindings in place while the glue dries.

Use a scraper blade to trim the glued bindings flush to the surrounding wood.

This binding is very easy to use. The edges are uniform and smooth enabling easy installation. Use black super glue to hide joins and you will get perfect results!

Make sure you buy enough!

This binding is excellent and just so easy to use gluing the layers together with a brush and thinners.

My only problem is that each time I order I just don't buy enough. The 0.5 mm x 6.35 obviously divides the other colours - I keep running out - I s'pose I am just useless at counting.

I received the binding promptly. It was exactly what it was described as. I must admit i had issues getting it to work on a repair I was doing on an acoustic neck. I abandoned it and went to some ebony i had and made my own binding. I had better luck with the wood, probably just me here with the issue. Thanks Stew Mac. I think I'll stay away from plastic.

The binding worked for me easily. Very little waste. Use the right glue and all goes well. Looks great and ordered more.

Excellent product, makes binding a breeze

Stew-Mac binding is a time saver because both the top and the bottom and perfectly smooth and help ou avoid gaps caused by using binding that is saw cut. Easily trimmed in width or height using the Stew-Mac Binding Trimmer.
