Today I made some very good progress on some of my builds. Working on my Cocobolo and redwood guitar I got the binding ledges cut and finally made a decision as to which binding combination to use. Here I am using a cocobolo binding with a maple strip on the side and a w/b/w- coral -w/b/w combo on the top. I like the look. It’s bold enough for a big body guitar like this but not too overpowering.

That is some really slick purfling bordering the top, and the cocobolo binding looks great 🙂
