Binding, BWBW 20/20/20/20, ABS

$4.18

Plastic 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.

Product Description

PDF: Conversion Chart

Caution: Never rout for your bindings, backstrips, or purflings before you receive them as dimensions can vary slightly.

The chemical names for plastic acronyms are as follows:

  • ABS - Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene
  • PVC - Polyvinyl chloride
  • CAB - Cellulose Acetate Butyrate
  • Boltaron™ - an extruded ABS/PVC Alloy.

NOTE: We offer the 4 different plastic compositions because not all dimensions are available in one particular type of plastic. All 4 compositions behave similarly and can be glued up using our binding adhesives.

Short

These strips are too short for an electric guitar body, I bought 5 for les paul bodies and now I have to "glue" extra pieces to reach the end. Absolutely useless for acoustic guitars.

Hi Ricardo! The plastics used for bindings and purflings are in most cases, manufactured in large sheets for a variety of industries. They are not made with typical guitar dimensions in mind. For this reason it is common place to glue two pieces around the outline of the instrument and butt them together at the end of the guitar.
