Ivoroid (imitation ivory pattern) celluloid binding and purfling strips, available in both straight-grain and wavy-grain patterns. Each strip is long enough to comfortable fit around the edge of most guitars. It bends well (for tighter radii apply a small amount of heat to coerce it in to shape without breaking), and should be glued using our Binding Cement.
Binding, often called edging, is a decorative inlay for the edge of guitars and other instruments, furniture and boxes. Available in myriad colours, sizes and styles, binding is inlaid in to a channel routed around the edge of the piece so that it sits flush with the top and sides. All of our bindings have the colour and pattern running all the way through, so they can be sanded and shaped as required, then polished to a high shine. Binding is often lacquered over with the rest of the workpiece to make the join imperceptible. For fitting we recommend using our Binding Cement, and holding the binding in place with Masking Tape for Binding, and large elastic bands. Care should be taken when bending binding to tight contours - often a small amount of heat can be useful in making the binding more pliable.

Excellent workability. The result looks very good, and stills being resistant to impacts.

Not cheap, but good.
