binding thickness question


Recommended Posts

I have a set of plans for a late 50's LP that gives binding dimensions. It shows the top binding thickness as 0.190 overall. That's made up of inner laminated strips that total 0.120 thick (b/w/b/w/b/w) and a 0.70 thick black strip on the outside. The depth on the side is shown as 7/32".

There was also a back binding that was 7/32" deep. It was made up of a 0.80 inner section (b/w/b/w) and an outer black strip of 0.70.

Hope this helps. I don't have anything on modern LPs.

these dimensions represent a les paul custom, not a les paul standard. les paul standards have a binding strip approximately half of what a les paul custom is. they also do not have the black and white, just solid white. The back is not bound on a les paul standard, the neck is, but the headstock is not. I beleive the thinkness on the neck is 0.60, and the thickness on the body is 0.90
