Default Fretboard Binding

The Macassar fretboard is being bound in black ebony. When oiled up, there will be little contrast. Spartan is the theme that is developing with this guitar...at least the front side.

Cutting the FB to profile.





Cutting ebony stock into binding.





Sanding the ebony.



The binding strips and the fretboard.



The fretboard binding jig. Wedges are used to apply inward pressure to join the glued surfaces.

Like the castle in its corner
In a medieval game
I foresee terrible trouble
And I stay here just the same
