Guitar Headstock Binding tutorial

“I still remember what it was like to attempt an inlay on my first guitar. I had no one to help me figure it out or show me what to do, and it was intimidating and scary …

If you’re feeling like that now then read on …

As a result of not having any guidance, the inlay process was difficult, stressful, and didn’t produce very good results.

Thankfully the story didn’t end there…

Over the years, I refined my techniques and now inlaying my guitars is not only enjoyable, but it really helps to elevate the guitars to a higher artistic level.

I believe that understanding these simple techniques can help you do better inlay too.

That’s exactly why I’ve created this new video guitar inlay video course!

In it, I explain the different techniques and tools – how to use them AND I clearly demonstrate every step for you

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn guitar inlay for the first time, or to pick up some simple tricks to make the process you use now even easier and produce better results on your next guitar.”
