I'm getting ready to place an order and I had some questions about binding. I'm going to try to do an F5 with top, back, fingerboard and headstock all bound in grained ivoroid. LMI only sells it in one size thats 1/4" tall and like 50" long. Do you just trim it down with a knife to do the board and head binding? How much (in inches) should I order to do the full F5 with some left over for if I mess up? Thanks.
LMI also sells soundhole binding. Can you use the regular binding on the soundholes (approprately trimmed)?
