Bindings & Purflings & Backstrips
LMI has the very largest selection of bindings, purflings, woods strips, and backstrips for acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, mandolin, ukulele, and other stringed instruments. Materials include wood (normally a tonewood we sell for back and sides), fiber (a crisp looking wood composite material), plastic, and marquetry (layered wood patterns like herringbone and Vintage Martin patterns), and shell. Also, there are combinations of wood and fiber. We carry celluloid binding in ivoroid, mother of pearl patterns and tortoise patterns. The filters on our website are invaluable for sorting through the dozens of options. In addition to materials, LMI carries a binding routing jig, gramil, rosette cutter, and a variety of router bits, bearing, and adhesives for binding work.
MEASUREMENTS: Height - dimension from side of guitar; Width - from top or back of guitar looking down
