Can you splice the wood binding with a scarf joint in the troublesome area? Practice with scrap wood cut to binding dimensions.

Will plastic binding follow the curve?
Compound curve ... Well put

I bent it in my fox bender

It's bent to the right shape, it fits around the soundboard.
Because the back has a angle and a 15ft radius (on an l-00) it makes the area from the waist to the neck steeper than the lower section.

Is there a way to bend this sort of angle?
