Wood for Guitar Bindings & Backstrip

There are few colors that go with both spruce and cedar tops as far as bindings go. And if you can find something that works it might not bend easily. I have selected jotoba for the bindings and backstrips for all my wood kits because the color goes with either spruce or cedar and it bends well.

I have found jotoba works very well for the bindings and backstrips because the color goes with either spruce or cedar and it bends well. Jatoba is initially a light brown color but turns a nice warm brown with time and exposure to UV light. I use it for bindings in all my wood kits

The binding blank is enough for a complete set of bindings and a spare or two, depending on how you slice them. There is more than enough of the backstrip for a butt strip as well.

The binding blank measures 32″ x 1-18″ x .200″ Glue the purfling veneers to the bottom surface, slice off the stick and bend before you install. This is the same method as used in the book and dvd. The back strip is 32″ x .100″ x .200″. The .100″ surface is surface used for the center strip.

The wood for Guitar Bindings and Backstrip from JSB Guitars has enough material for at least one guitar and especially when following the instructions in the DVD set.

This Classical Guitar Fret Wire has the correct dimensions for Classical guitars which will help in making a smoth fingerboard.

These are great for putting back strips and bindings together. I love the look of the jatoba against the rosewood. As with all of my other orders JB always is prompt and efficient in getting the order out.
Great resource for someone like me who doesn’t have the capability of milling and sizing large planks of material. Thanks John.

I’m on my first JB guitar, and did a less than perfect job on the bindings. I reordered the binding blank so I could start over. As with all my prior orders this one arrived really fast, and I was very happy with my new piece of beautifully quarter sawn jatoba. Thank John.

I recently purchased another stack of veneers and binding sets from JSB. Great looking veneer sheets. Consistent thickness & color…the Alaskan smells great 🙂 The Jatoba for the bindings & back strip work easily and look great with spruce/rosewood. Very happy with this order. The response time and shipping was ‘Amazon speed’ aka it arrived very quickly. Thank you!
