dawn8 Posted March 1, 2005 Report Share Posted March 1, 2005 Hi! I'm new to this forum and I thought it would be good to introduce myself with a sort of newbie question Well, I'm working on my Les Paul project guitar, it's going to be black with white plastic binding. Plus, what I thought would look good, would be a wide abalone stripe before the binding, like this one: (hope the pics work) Only thing close to this I could find was the abalone purfling on StewMac, but the precut purflings there are way too narrow for me, what I'm looking for is maybe twice that wide. So, the actual question: Does anyone know a place where to buy this kind of abalone binding? Would the cheap extra-thin pearl veneers work that I've seen on some stores? I know they don't require any cavity to install but I don't quite like the idea if the binding sticks out of the body, even a little if you know what I mean.
