Hey all!

I have to replace neck binding on a 2001 Standard. I'm having trouble finding the right color binding. I've got 4 different colored bindings here and believe it or not the closest one is that awful pinkish Stewmac stuff. Close but not close enough though.

Anyone have any leads?

Thanks in advance!

Search "ABS plastic sheet" and you will find MANY vendors of suitable materials offering an incredible color selection. In the past I've dealt with Leathertone and Gravoply, which may now be part of one company now.

If you can mail samples of the original binding to the various companies that might be able to help, some of them may have exact color matched material for you.

Typically ABS is ordered in increments of .005 inch. You can get layers that thin if you wanted to do something wild and crazy like laminate up rainbow binding.
