acoustic guitar repair and binding.

Post by John Bushby »

Hi folks, I'm an instrument maker and repairer based in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. I am replacing a badly damaged soundboard on a Simon & patrick acoustic. I have been asking Godin guitars about their brown binding and rosette but they are not very helpful, however I did find their rosette form a supplier in the USA! Does anyone know where I can get the same brown/white binding they use on these guitars. I am trying to restore to original look as it is important for the owner.

Cheers, John

A picture would be nice. Help us identify the binding.
I need your help. I can't possibly make all the mistakes myself!

Welcome to the MIMF, John!

You will probably get a better response in the Repairs section. I will give you a day to see this, then move it there.
