    Anyone ever round the sides on the body after puting binding on?? I suppose this would have a similar effect to an accent line.
     
  2. If you get heavy handed with the sanding, it's sort of a natural occurence :D

    I relieve the edge a little because it can be a bit sharp. I've only used the I/B/I binding and I don't go so far as to expose any of the center black stripe. That seems to make it round enough for comfort and keeps the look intact.

    I only ask because I thought about using maple binding, and round off the sides (to Fender specs, maybe). If I would get the same effect by laminating some maple under the top wood, I won't bother with binding.
