Testimonials

“You guys are the best. I just received my order and literally every time i describe my specifications on how the fretboards should look you guys deliver 10/10. the two long scale indian rosewood fingerboards looks simply spectacular and the ziricote is glorious. I usually dont take the time to write these but this time I had to. Thanks for years of wonderful service guys. And if you can find the guys who helped pick my recent boards, make sure to personally tell them how happy I am."

Purflex Purflings & Backstrips

PURFLEX500
 

 
IMPORTANT: Never rout for your backstrip or purflings 
before you receive them as dimensions can vary +/- 10%.

These patented innovative and beautiful Purflex products – created by Bruce Petros of Petros Guitars – are flexible, real wood purflings with matching backstrips. The purflings can be installed on any curve, in any direction, easily and elegantly. If you’re concerned about using shell due to Fish and Wildlife restrictions on international shipping, Purflex is your answer. Patent #8,138,404

Note: These strips are shorter than standard purflings, so measure carefully when ordering.

Recipe for black epoxy mixture for Purflex strips:

  • Use 2 parts Zpoxy to 1 part powdered tempera (or 1 part resin, 1 part hardener and 1 part tempera). 
  • Mix well and apply as described in the installation instructions below.
  • Do not use lampblack powder/solution to color the epoxy!
