Default Fretboard Binding 2

The fretboard binding continues.

One bound fretboard!

Compare these pictures. One is my ebony-bound FB, the other is a maple-bound FB.

The hard and brittle ebony binding chips when it is planed.

The softer maple planes into classic curled shavings.

My memory of the Sierra sky
Has been clouded by the savage fire
Feel the glory of the global slam
