Rosewood binding

I used this binding on a bass guitar neck. The binding is very attractive with a rich color and I haven't oiled it yet. It glued well using CA.

Very nice!

These are high quality and very nice. They are really a quick way to get a real custom look without any extra effort over regular plain wood bindings.

Adds class to project!

I have always made my own maple binding but thought I would try something different. SM's wood bindings are easy to apply, easy to trim, take finish well and look good when done.

Curly Maple Binding

I bought the curly maple with b/w/b trim for an OM model I am building. I bought several extras knowing I would probably break a few getting the hang of bending. I have only used plastic bindings in my previous builds. Sure enough...broke a couple until I figured out a steaming/bending process that worked great. These bindings are going to make my new Spruce/Mahogany OM pop.

Natural wood bindings

I have used SM's wood bindings and purfling for numerous instruments. Always accurate, solid, and high quality materials for good looks. Like most things I purchase here I have had no problems, only successes.

Perfect bindings

I use these bindings almost exclusively. I find them to be accurately and evenly cut, which, together with an accurately cut binding ledge, make for perfect bindings.
