Re: Rope bindings advice please

Thanks Guys for all your feedback and pics of what you have done. I also think Trento hit the nail. The outside strip of veneer is used to keep it all together and then removed afterwards. What a Gem of a secret that was! And it is precisely this that excites me. Please...I do not expect to be spoon...

Re: Rope bindings advice please

Yes!!!.....that is exactly it!... Brilliant. Thanks for the low down on that Trent. I will watch the P R vid again and again. Two questions if I may?.... Did you make that Beautiful instrument? Should I use hot glue or will Tite bond bend just as good under heat?. The idea of the veneer strips each ...

The rope is made up of brown and creamy coloured wood and on the inside there is a thin veneer strip. It is quite chunky and to get aro...

I used Polycarbonate to make the template and hardwood for the mould.I really like this shape. All spars,and the s...

Thanks Martin.

Re ..Rope bindings. I have sent a message to my friend Andrew Dipper who now resides in USA and is very much into historical reproductions.

Can anybody please give me some advice on how this striking binding was made? I would like to have a go. At a guess I woukd say that alternating coloured strips of w...

Re: New GS Guitar Build Started

Those were lovely words Ross.
Yeah I guess there are a good many of us riddled with ailments, myself included but don't want to go there.
I share wholeheartedly your views that getting on with some Lutherie and discussing it all here is a great great form of medication.

Re: Test Post

Martin.
The guitar is absolutely beautiful.
You must feel so proud of yourself.
I like the swept back compensated bridge design.
Must have been a swear to get the bend on the cut out?
Lovely work.
