Thompson luthier Olivia Elia walks through the process of installing binding on a 0000 guitar.
October 27, 2021

A guitar body’s binding serves both protective and cosmetic purposes. Keeping the body edges safe from dings and other damage, it also tends to be an integral part of an instrument’s appearance, depending on the materials used. In this video, Thompson Guitars luthier Olivia Elia shows how she applies maple binding on a 0000 guitar built with walnut back and sides and a Lutz spruce top.
