I have purchased both the rosewood and curly maple strips, both of which looked great. It was my first wood bending experience, and I only used my mom's curling iron, some damp paper towels, and some aluminum foil. Yet, it still worked perfectly. I used the rosewood to bind the inside corner of my semi hollow build, making a cleaner looking corner. Now just on to the maple for binding the 'f-hole'.
The bindings are top notch and service is great
I used this binding for my resonator and couldn't be happier with the results!
First coat of clear and they realy stand out, Very easy to bend as well.
Ottimi binding. Excellent
Oui je râle vraiment de ne pas en avoir pris plus . j'en ai acheté pour voir, et maintenant il va falloir faire une nouvelle commande . Dommage que ça coûte si cher de faire venir toutes ces bonnes choses en France . j'espére qu'un jour proche, une solution sera trouvée . Ou alors un petit voyage au Etats unis !!!OU le contraire!? Bonne journée à tous chez Stewmac
I cannot fault these on their own, they are consistently accurate. I usually buy enough to match the variations of color and grain. I do however agree with some other reviewers that a matching purfling would be very welcome for tying up the end graft.
Excellent product. Does the job it is intended for without any problems.
I ordered the curly maple with BWB bindings. Got them two days after my order, just like they said I would. They were well packed in a cardboard tube inside of a larger cardboard box. I removed them and inspected. They were at least as nice as I had expected, if not more so. This is where the unthinkable happened -- while replacing the plastic plug that holds the bindings in the tube, the tube itself collapsed in my hand. It unraveled and bent, breaking each of those lovely bindings. The next day I called customer service and told them the story, stressing that the bindings had arrived in great shape, but it was my and/or the tube's fault for the incedent. But they immediately offered a replacement without further question (or making me feel any more stupid for what happened). If they had not replaced these bindings, I certainly could not hold it against them. But by replacing them for me they demonstrated superior customer service over and above what is normally seen today. And they have sealed me as a grateful future customer. Way to go STEWMAC!
I use a lot of the curly maple with B/W/B pin strip and some of the rosewood & ebony with W/B/W pin strip for binding. I also use the curly maple for lining fret boards and peg heads. I highly recommend it.
