White Plastic Binding

About This Item

ABS plastic bindings are used by Gibson, Martin, Taylor, Fender and many other manufacturers. The material adheres well to wood and to itself.

Our ABS plastic bindings are 65" long — a single piece will reach completely around a guitar body. These bindings are manufactured with smooth edges, not rough-sawn from sheets, for closer size tolerances.

#5782 extra-tall .565" binding is the right size for Les Paul® and similar guitar tops.


Example binding layout
(see illustration at right)
A  Laminate strips of .010" alternating black and white
B  Combination .020" black and .040" white
C  Use .020" white and .020" black, installed sideways as edge trim

Laminate bindings
You can sandwich strips together using our Binding Laminator and acetone. Measure carefully before you rout the channels, and almost any combination can be installed.

Learn more from our free online article How to Install Bindings:
•  Rout channels
•  Binding joints
•  Shape binding for fingerboards
•  Bind the body and peghead
•  Finishing over binding

For easy binding installation, we recommend StewMac Bind-ALL Guitar Binding Glue.

Binding tape or rubber clamping bands will hold the bindings in place while the glue dries.

Use a scraper blade to trim the glued bindings flush to the surrounding wood.

Trade Secrets!

Trade Secrets!

Coloring new binding to match the old stuff

We've watched Dan Erlewine repair this 1930s Kay over the previous 3 Trade Secrets. It's time to finish it up. Elliot John-Conry of EJC Guitars ages Dan's patch of new plastic binding so it blends in with the old binding around it. About the guitar in this video: This 1930s Kay Deluxe is a fixer-upper that Dan Erlewine repaired in order to sell. Now that it's in great shape again, maybe Dan'll keep it!

Scraping for sharp looking binding: here's how it's done!

The king of Gibson relic finishes: Tom Murphy is well known as Gibson's go-to guy for relic finishes: perfectly worn and age-cracked. Tom's business, Guitar Preservation, makes this a specialty. In this week's Trade Secret he shows us how to make and use a scraper for cleaning binding after spraying a sunburst.

Making a sharp-edged razor file for binding channels

Bad news: the binding on this old Gibson is crumbling to bits.
Worse news:that binding is the only thing holding the body together!
Dan Erlewine's plan is to replace the binding bit-by-bit, so the top doesn't fall off.

By grinding a new edge on a razor file, he creates a tool for cutting crisp square binding channels without a router.

Good to have around

good stuff

By

Verified Buyer


I'm not a blind loyal fan of S-M for a few reasons, but in this case I'm more than happy. These .020 binding strips are very easy to work with. I laid them up as a laminate (wbwbwbW) in sets of 3 & it was easier than falling off a log. Did not need any heat to bend them around the curves of a Telecaster & the biggest plus is that they were long enough to go all the way around. It really irks me when some of the other vendors sell pre-laminated bindings that are too short.They force y' to buy 2 strips to go all the way around the body & then you have to spend a bunch of time making a good splice. I also got a couple of the .075 x 020 bindings & was able to bend them edgewise without any trouble.As said above I didn't need any heat to do the .020's, I did use a little heat to do the last white strip which was .040, to set it & minimize spring back
As easy as this was,I don't ever see myself buying pre-laminated bindings again.This will be my go-to source for these.

Great Perfling

By

Verified Buyer


I used the .020" X .075" white strips for perfling between tortoise shell binding and the mahogany on my StewMac Dreadnought guitar. I was able to bend it edge-wise between the binding and the guitar side as well as flat-wise between the binding and the guitar back.

Easy to shape, even on a F-style Mandolin.

By

Verified Buyer


I've been building F-style mandolins for about 10yrs and I've always used the solid triple binding that companies like LMI or Siminoff carried. Hated having to miter all the connections and always lost alot to simple mistakes. Thank you Stewmac for the great binding. Now I just layer each color, one at a time and BOOM, done in 1/3rd the time, with great results. Thanks to Tom Ellis of Ellis mandolins and his co-worker Pava for showing how this is done for perfect results. You can see them in action in the video "We should build mandolins". Again, thanks Stewmac!!

Its consistent with no color variations. Bends nicely with a little heat (heat gun.)

Just what I needed.

What can I say? It's binding. Does what it's supposed to. Handles well, looks great.

Good Quality, but be aware of the thickness.

By

Verified Buyer


I appreciate the consistency of this binding. It is ready to use without any cleanup of edges required. It comes in long lengths which I like. I scuff the glue side with sandpaper to give it some tooth for the glue to grab onto.
My only criticism is that the .060" binding can run .055" which can be a problem if you need the thickness to match an accurate ledge and it tends to look a bit thin after it is cleaned up.
