    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.

    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...

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

    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.

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

    No, sorry. But if you place the orders, I'll refund the shipping.

    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 :laugh2:
