Yes, I have also seen many guitars bound in curly Koa. It is a beautiful figured binding material. That said, functionally, I am not a fan because it is a relatively soft hardwood. This defeats the protection purpose of binding in my view. As a purfling material however it is a great visual accenting choice against a dark binding.
