No binding, also 9.5 radios with medium jumbo frets and the truss rod adjuster on the headstock. I want binding, 7.25 vintage radius and Vintage frets and the adjuster at the heel.

Oh and I want to build it. That's the fun part.


^ Agreed on the building = fun part and I totallyyyyyy understand the binding!

May be right material, but I think the pieces are small (e.g. the size of the acoustic guitar trims they are intended for).

I wouldn't use this one - bottom of page says "We do not recommend using fiber veneer for binding, as it doesn’t sand well." Ditto for blocks that need to be shaped to the fretboard radius.

You could make, like, three sets from this:

Why not use Ebony for the blocks? Acouple of headstock plates would be enough

I was gonna say ebony would be a bitch to sand, but sitting in maple it would probably all be quite similar.

the idea is that this is a late 60's altered and abused Jazzy. I think I'm going to experiment with the ABS stuff at Stewmac, it's the same material as the binding so it should look the same.

kinda like this as a hardtail with a black pickguard



I might even goes as far as routing the tremolo routing and then filling it in just so it looks "right"

meanwhile my son wants this:
