Take Your Headstock Binding Skills To The Next Level

Learn The Techniques Pros Use For Flawless and Consistent Headstock Binding

“Clean and precise binding around the headstock of a guitar is something I have always loved to see. It adds an elegance to the look and feel. It also helps to unify the design visually; tying the binding elements of the headstock to the body bindings.

The problem is that if you don’t do a perfect job of installing the headstock binding, it won’t achieve your goal of making the guitar look more refined and could even make it look worse.
I spent years of trial and error developing and refining my system and approach to binding a guitar headstock with wood.

When I first started, headstock binding was a stressful and hard job that was difficult to get right, but now with the very same technique that I show you in this course, I rest assured knowing that every guitar I make will have flawless binding and I hope you will be able to do the same after taking this course.”
