    Anyone out there have a 2" piece of scrap binding I could buy from them?

    I need to repair a small piece which has disappeared from my '78 Fender Jazz.

    I think I can do it myself, and, if not, I have a local friend who could do it if I had the materials.


    I'd be glad to pay a few bucks to get a small piece of the correct binding mailed to me.

    Matching colors will be a bitch even if you got it from Fender directly. Dye lots change and the color changes with time and with the finish that is applied. If Fender can't provide this check out Stew mac.

    I'm not getting much input on this one, but being the pioneering, resourceful type I'll get it done somehow.

    I like the challenge.:D
