these purfing have some places where wood was really soft- had a flaw (defect) but I take care. As you know: wood have its own lows...
This purfling saved me a lot of time and it looks excellent.
I like the effect by using maple as the white core or edge. When finished, there is a 3d effect and the maple grain does show. I have noticed some inconsistency in the width of the purfling although the thickness is very consistent. I wish it were available in longer lengths to avoid the splice required when working around a top or bottom.
Well I have to say that the first lot I ordered was no good it just cracked when I tried to bend it. So I told Stewmac about it and they replaced it at no cost. This lot bent like a dream with no problems. I have used this stuff from Stewmac in the past and never had a problem before.
This stuff is fine, and the most reminiscent that I can find in the Stewmac catalog to the old celluloid black and white purfling Gibson used in the 1930's. The dimensions and material are wrong, but 2 rows of this wood purfling has become my signature. Sure wish they would produce a replca of the old Gibson style purfling. That would make my day, week, month, . . .
I've tried a lot of bindings, but these are truly the best. They don't break (easely) when you bend them. Though not cheap, they're worth the money.
I love Stew Macs BWB's as they hold together when mitering at any angle and are crispy white. Would like to see SM stock double length BWB's which are really nice to use, especially on a top with shell purfling. (Pic is Bloodwood Parlor guitar with 7 miter joints showing.....fun....)
Great time saver, and very neat too. If your ledge is cut accurately, this stuff works wonderfully well.
I love this stuff, It gives me a great look on the face of my giutars. I'll use it on all my natural guitars.
Cant say enough...consistant, shipped well and safely...another great Stew-Mac transaction!
