This stunning example of a Gibson Les Paul tribute was in the workshop to have Faux binding. This is created by carefully removing the finish on the edge of the maple cap, exposing the maple, which creates the look of binding.
Once the maple cap was exposed, the 'binding' was gently sanded and the finished with truoil, to protect the maple by sealing it. The truoil blended in well with the thin matt nitro lacquer finish on the guitar.
All finished, Plenty of pictures of this lovely guitar in the gallery below
