Testimonials

"Just received my latest classical guitar kit. I had a couple of requests for wood selection, and you did a great job in selecting on both counts,
In addition, all the wood was great quality - this was an expensive kit, but your product made it a very good value to me.

Thanks for the great work!"

Binding Tape

ADHESIVESBindingTapeFT75at700

 

Almost all factories and hand makers in our experience use tape to hold the bindings and purflings in place while gluing them to the edge of the body. Regular masking tape is generally too weak and tears under the pressure needed to press the bindings and purflings firmly into the routed channels. Filament tape—plenty strong enough—must be cut to length with scissors or a knife and is expensive. The tape of choice is this binding tape, our FT75, made from stiff paper with strong rubber based adhesive. It is strong enough to apply sufficient pressure with a strong adhesive yet can be torn by hand as you work. Each roll should do at least 5 or 6 guitars.
