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.

Disappointed with product

By

Verified Buyer


This tape lifted wood fibers from my top even though I knew to pull it off against the grain. In fact I tried every way I could to minimize the lifting - the fibers pulled off. I have never had this happen with blue tape.

Response from StewMac


Hi Wayne,

We're sorry our Binding Tape did not work for you as you expected. We stand behind our return policy -- if you are not satisfied with a product, you may return it anytime for a refund or exchange. Please call us at 1-800-848-2273. We look forward to helping you with this.

If you ever encounter this issue again in the future, we recommend gently heating the tape with a desk lamp or heat gun to reactivate the adhesive. This should make removing the tape go much more smoothly. Any remaining adhesive can then be cleaned up using a little naphtha.

Too porous and not as rigid. very disappointed. I wish I had been notified why you changed, rather than thinking you upgraded.

I tend to be a little lazy and this beat cutting tape to size.

Love this tape!

By

Verified Buyer


I used to do the 3 million clamps - try to hold it - cry and cuss while I got glue all over the place routine when installing binding. Tried masking tape too - which does not stick well and leaves a residue.

Noticed this tape on the Stew Mac site - best $ spent in a long time. Love it. Easy to use, comes off clean and easy, and holds without issue every time.

Great product - HIGHLY recommend!
