Royalite Binding

Just a quick heads up. We finally are able to offer the royalite binding for pre-order.
We've (all) been waiting for what seems like ages to get it, and after a great deal of effort and expense, it's finally here.

Royalite Binding

Here is a quick photo showing the colour compared to a 57 goldtop.

Great new, Tom! I'll be placing my order as well, but I have to figure out how much I need first.

Re: Royalite Binding

So what's the length required? My quick measurement said minimum of 53" for the body and 36" for the neck... so guess 8' does one guitar...

You got it. One piece will do a full guitar.

It is. This binding is thick enough for the body. You'll need to scrape it down for the neck.

Re: Royalite Binding

How do we order I only see where shipping is 50.00? Do you just have to shave the width to be correct for the fingerboard?

You bet. $10 off for each piece. If you place the order I'll refund the difference right away.

Just select your location from the drop down, and hit 'buy now'.
Yes, just shave it down. It's sized for the largest you'll need, and can be reduced from there as required.

Re: Royalite Binding

Is there a way to change the quantity without placing separate orders?

Re: Royalite Binding

If I order, let's say 10 bindings, and get a refund for shipping, Paypal will rip 2% for the transfer. Do you accept CC besides Paypal?

No, Paypal refunds everything, including fees.
I'm starting to get the feeling I should work on a 'add to cart' option

Re: Royalite Binding

i think what metamatic means is that, if we europeans pay in euro with our creditcard, paypal charges for the exchange to dollar. When u refund in dollars, paypal charges again for the exchange to euro's. So u lose two times. U can set up your paypal page so that it calculates the shipping.

oh, I get it, and I did not know that!
I changed it to a cart system, so it should solve the issue.
Thanks for the heads up!

You should also add a link to the page with other products from the individual pages. If you go here 1st - Binding - there's nowhere else to go.

Thanks..otherwise it should be possible to send a receipt via paypal, if someone place an order.

I will try the new system.

For US orders it seems logical..but for Europe.

Shouldn´t it be 40 per binding and one time 25 for shipping?

Yes, it should be 40 for binding, but it only allows it to be set up one way for some reason. I'll be spending some time over the next few days updating everything.
