Got curly maple bindings-9pcs and all of them exactly what i needed!!! It ll be awesome bindings!!!
The quality of these bindings is superb. The laminations hold up well when bending as long as you don't use much more than a misting to bend them.
I make most of my Bindings myself, but sometimes I use Stewmac Natural wood Binding. And I love the quality!!
I love these binding/laminated strips, a short visit to the side bender and they are ready to glue, no more broken purfling strips bent in various strange shapes.
Just what i needed, right size and makes for great fretboard binding.
I ordered the plain bloodwood bindings. These strips are perfectly cut, with beautiful coloring.
I've used both binding types and have had good results, for the most part. They are consistent and made from quality materials. The only problem I had was with the curly koa binding. Because of the nature of the wood, it can break at the more extreme curls. Buy a couple extra strips to accommodate this. Worth it if combined with the proper contrasting body woods.
The dimensions are very accurate and consistent. That's the good news.
Bad news is if you're planning on mitering the purflings - good luck finding 10/20/10 w/b/w
material anywhere. I make my own, but it's a pain to do so. I wish they'd either change trim to 10/10/10 OR offer 10/20/10 purfling (without bindings) as a complimentary product.
I adore these black strips! There is no equal! Simply order them and StewMac delivers them to you, now I know it.
I purchased 80 pieces of Cocobolo binding (without trim). Nearly all of them had beautiful grain and color. There were only a few pieces that I might have returned because of quality or color but not enough to make it worth shipping them back. The ones I received mostly looked very much like the ones in the picture.
