Binding Tape

About This Item

First choice for binding, and now for fretwork too!
High-tack adhesive and tough crepe backing make this the strongest paper tape we've found for securing bindings while the glue dries. Multiple tape sizes make masking a fretboard a breeze.

  • Tough but flexible paper backing
  • Thin adhesive that resists creeping under pressure
  • Strong tack that doesn't leave a residue

Sure, we call it "binding tape" but it's also excellent protection for your fretboard. Skinny widths fit perfectly between the high frets so you can put your scissors down and get to work. Mask off a fretboard in record time!

Not recommended for use on vintage or delicate finishes.

The strong adhesive of our Binding Tape is good for applying pressure, but be cautious about using tape on soft top woods like spruce. With soft woods, first stick our binding tape to a cotton t-shirt to give it less tack before applying it. This will help reduce the possibility of any damage when you go to remove it.

Once the glue is dry, remove any tape slowly and gently—pulling at an angle and lightly rubbing it with your index finger. Warming the tape will also help it lift away easily without pulling out wood fibers.

Not sure which tape you need?
The stretchiness of this tape is great for getting into tight spots and getting extra pressure. The lower tack also makes it safer for finishes and easier to remove (but you should never leave any tape on a guitar finish for an extended length of time). It's also great for masking when finishing too.

When using wood binding, the Brown Tape is the right choice for the extra tack and pull you need to hold the rigid wood binding in place. If you are using celluloid or plastic bindings, the orange Binding Tape is the perfect tape to hold the flexible binding strips in place.

Thanks a lot!

Really heavy duty

By

Verified Buyer


I really like the dispenser. Although I never have the chance to use the older version of the tape, I'm satisfied with this one. The dispenser is really heavy. Pretty solid construction. Will last forever in the shop. I'm thinking about buying a second one for the two type of tape. I would like, for the next version, that something align the tape roll on the dispenser roll. The smaller tape roll are not very solid (when they are full), so they tend to be misaligned, but if the dispenser had a notch or something to align the roll I think it shoulb be a great improvement.

I am really glad I decided to get the binding tape and dispenser. It has really made it easier to tape, after gluing on my binding.

DAMNED HANDY

You wouldn't think of getting one of these caddies, but it makes life SO much easier just having the ability to quickly pull a piece of tape one handed while you're holding whatever wherever. I bought the 3 sizes of orange tape, and squeezed a 1" blue roll on there too. It's omnipresent in pics of work on my bench. Get one today. It's one of those things you didn't realize you needed until you have it.

I now can tape the fretboard without having to use an Exacto knife to cut tape for the proper width on the fretboard. This product makes that job much easier.

Love this tape!

By

Verified Buyer


Really like this tape. Have used it on spruce and canadian cypress tops for binding and have not had any issue with it pulling fibres. Have also used it to mask fingerboards. No problem there.
I even like the orange. Helps me find the damn stuff on my cluttered bench top! Must work and that last aspect I will admit.

I bought these different sizes in a 3 pack to cover the various widths that the frets are.
