Cream Plastic Binding

65" long to reach around the entire guitar, with smooth edges for close size tolerances. This is the right cream color for Gibson® guitars.

ABS plastic bindings are used by Gibson®, Martin®, Taylor®, Fender® and others. The material adheres well to wood and to itself. Our ABS bindings are 65" long — a single piece will reach completely around a guitar body. They're made with smooth edges, not rough-sawn from sheets, for close size tolerances.

#4397 extra-tall .565" cream binding is the right size and color for Gibson® Les Paul® Guitar tops.


Custom Binding Installation Tips

Example binding layout
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.

We recommend StewMac Bind-ALL Guitar Binding Glue for the best results when installing plastic binding, even on oily tonewoods. It has just the right amount of tackiness to keep the bindings in place while securing them to the body.

To hold the bindings in place as the glue dries, use Brown Binding Tape or Rubber Clamping Bands.

For a clean look, once the glue is dry trim the bindings flush to the surrounding wood with a Scraper Blade.

Color-matching Cream Parts and Bindings
There have always been slight variations in the color of the cream plastic parts used on Gibson and other guitars. It's not uncommon to see brand new and vintage guitars with bindings, pickup rings, toggle switch rings and pickguards that don't perfectly match in color. We do our best to match all our cream products, but there's no absolute control from batch to batch, or from supplier to supplier.
