Thanks, it is a classic combination used by many builders...

I like my bindings to be hardwood and usually using a very hard species such as ebonies, rosewoods, hard maple or even satinwood. Binding’s function is to protect the guitar from dings. When the back and sides are visually dark, homogeneous and plain as with this set of Brazilian Rosewood, a bit of figure in a purfling can be nice. The Koa will show a bit of curl and mottle once under finish...
