“Dear Sir,
A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with sitka top.
I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce.
The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirey by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a driss press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them.
It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career.
Many Thanks.
ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”

Plastic Binding & Purfling

BINDINGSPlasticGROUP600Plastic makes a good binding/purfling due to its resiliency and ease in bending. You can rip the laminated bindings to use as purfling.

Although our plastic binding is cut as cleanly as possible, it might be necessary to run the binding strips over a file (in a vice) prior to installation to further smooth out the edge.
