Natural Wood Bindings

About This Item

Beautiful hardwood bindings are a natural accent preferred by many contemporary luthiers.

Each unbent strip is approximately 0.080" thick, 0.250" tall and 33-1/2" long (2.03mm x 6.35mm x 850.90mm). The optional triple lamination is .010"/.020"/.010" white and black fiber.

For matching top purfling, choose our Violin Purfling Set.

Note: Cocobolo is a naturally oily wood. For best results, clean with acetone and glue with epoxy or super glue.

Not very curly at all...

By

Verified Buyer


Sizing was fine, however upon trying everything, only about 1/4 of the length was "curly" figured. Maple with "some curling" is how this should be sold. I understand the vagaries of wood, this however in no way should be sold as curly maple. Poor quality control or just an aberration? Next time I would send it back or check with naphtha first.

Looks Great

Building a ABG out of Black Limba and those Ebony binding looks great on it. I broke one while bending it but hey, that happens to the best. That's why I got some spares. But once again thumbs up for StewMac.

Tough To Bend Bindings

By

Verified Buyer


The bindings are very nice but just be aware that you really need a very Hot Pipe, like the ones used to bend guitar sides, in order to bend them without having them brake. I do not have the pipe so I resorted to using a hand held steamer & a hair blower to try to bend them. The lower bout of the guitar through the waste area goes pretty smoothly. However, when you get to the curve in the upper bout, not so good. Even though I spent a lot of time steaming & heating the bindings, I had 2 of them brake apart at that upper bout bend. Now I have to order more & start the whole process over again. Obviously a waste of time & money. There should be a note posted by StuMac letting buyers know exactly what to expect when they order these bindings. And yes I did read the section here about how to put bindings on a guitar. Guess that I should just have used the plastic bindings.
