Bent Herringbone Purfling, Set of 2

About This Item

Do you want to install beautiful purfling but don't have the time to bend it to shape? Using our Bent Herringbone Purfling will save you tons of time and will give your work the clean, professional look you demand without the frustration.

The look of herringbone purfling is beautiful, but can be tricky to work with! It's fussy to bend, and can delaminate and twist with only a little moisture and heat. This can be a real pain since you need to get each piece to fit perfectly in the channel to prevent gaps.

We accurately bend each piece to shape in our shop so they're ready to go on your guitar right out of the box.

Authentic 28 Style
This herringbone purfling features the authentic and iconic Style-28 Martin specs for that signature vintage appearance, made with laminated black fiber and natural unstained light wood.

Available in dreadnought and OM/000 shapes, sets of 2.
Approximate dimensions for dreadnought and OM/000:
0.140" wide x 0.065" thick x 32” long (3.56mm x 1.59mm x 813mm)

Add a touch of class and vintage vibe to your builds!

Not building a dreadnought or OM? Need unbent purfling? See our straight Herringbone Purfling, ready for you to bend to your own custom shape.

We also have matching pre-bent Herringbone Soundhole Rosettes that are to ready to install.

TIP: Dimensions are approximate. For proper fit, wood purflings should be measured directly before routing the channels on your instrument.

See our detailed instructions on routing a "stairstep" channel around the soundboard, gluing the purflings and their surrounding bindings in place, and scraping them flush.

I think the price is reasonable, they're bent correctly for a dread, and the thickness is fine for me. I'll be buying more.

Wow what a fit for a Martin dreadnought...

I am building a dreadnought with a Martin profile and this pre-bent herringbone laid up like I bent it for it. It came at breakneck speed I am greatly impressed by your shipping and order processing! Why only four stars then? Well it came broken. But don't get worked up as drop of super glue and some tape and it is as good as new. But this could have simply been avoided by using a heavy piece of stiff cardboard and some low tack tape instead of just throwing it into a box with wadded paper. Plus I bought a set of cutter bearings and a router bit that was thrown in with it to bounce around on it. I am surprised that it all wasn't in pieces. I know you have those items why didn't you use them? If you want 5 stars start using this technique. Or was it just pawning off the repair to me?

I'm glad your Company makes this. I used it on the last guitar I made and it was beautiful. Easy to use with the dread's profile.

GREAT Customer Service1

I received my order and the pair of purling strips arrived broken. I was disappointed but a quick email to Stew Mac explaining the situation was followed by an equally quick response apologizing and promising a replacement right away - which arrived a couple of days later! High quality products with great customer service. Thanks!

Have used this herringbone for over 5 years. It saves having to bend the straight pieces, and for the time saved I feel like I save money.

Herringbone Purfling

By

I used the Herringbone Purfling on my 000 build project. Since it came prebent for a dreadnought, I reshaped it by using a small steamer from an auto parts store, some pushpins and the cardboard 000 shape that came with the kit. The steamer worked great to soften the purfling mostly in the waist area. It didn't take much steam to make the material pliable. I then molded it around the cardboard 000 shape. The push pins held it in place until it cooled and set up in the new shape. I have mounted it on the body, and it looks great. I am really pleased with the results.
