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). 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. Be sure to look under Inlay Material of you are looking for shell, Mother of Pearl, and/or abalone shell for purflings and rosettes.
