Fingerboard Binding

Recommended Posts

I was planning on having a fingerboard with bindings on each side made with Ivoroid(.05)/Black(.02)/Ivoroid(.02) and was wondering if the 90/1000" is wide for a fingerboard binding?

I don't think 0.090 is too wide in the sense it will cause any fretboard or fretting problems, although you will have less fret tang in the board assuming you use that method of fretting i.e. trimming the fret tang. I think it is more a matter of looks. IMO, a single color binding that thick wouldn't look good but a laminated one like you suggest may. I assume you are putting the thin strip of ivoroid on the inside.
