Default Show Us Your Guitar's Nice Wood Binding!

I can honestly say a couple of short years ago I knew zip about wood binding on acoustics. I would (wood) have got very different binding on my custom made acoustic if I had known. I noticed wood binding after getting my Lowden S35 and then..oh oh..

With the release of the new Martin Deluxe with wood binding, I think I am not alone....maybe a new 'craze' coming? I don't know how I could play another guitar with plastic on it after owning these!
I suppose there is a catch, apart from price?

Anyway show us your wood binding...old and new.!

I'll start you off with my first puppy - 1993 Lowden S35 with Tasmanian Blackwood/Cedar with (I think) Sycamore/Rosewood and perhaps a Mahogany stripe binding?:






My new Maton Messiah EM100 808 with EIR/Sitka with Rosewood/Maple stripe binding:

The one and only guitar that I've built. Ebony bindings (a challenge to bend without cracking) and maple prufling lines. Koa top, back, and sides.



On edit, another image:

And to think some inexpensive Larrivees have come standard with nice wood bindings for some time.

It gives a fantastic look to the finish of a guitar.
And fwiw, there are plenty of these in the custom shop forum here.
