is binding on a guitar actually binding or is it just a white line just sprayed on and then lacuerd?how would u tell the difference?does it really matter,i mean unless its not lacquerd how would you tell an difference?

if i wanted binding on say my headstock all i would do is mask a line around it,spray it what ever color i wanted then lacquer it,no need to route out a section.

Binding is not purely cosmetic, it also protects the vulnerable edges of the guitar from knocks or bumps. If you bang your headstock against something (uumm, make that when, not if...) you will chip the painted binding, and the result will look cheap and nasty. If you bang a bound headstock, you may chip the clear over the binding, but the chip will be pretty inconspicuous.
