    Default Binding problem, any help?

    Does anyone know how to touch up the binding. I have had to replace some. Where itís joined, I canít get rid of the line. Iíve tried acetone and dissolved binding, white super glue. Just canít get it to burn together and not be so visible.

    My experience was the only thing that makes it look right is a perfect joint.

    I love John Hamlett's suggestion that "it's always easier to make it look worse than to make it look better".

    When I have to replace binding, I try to remove it back to a logical original joint. Then it might need color matching, but the joint is in a place where you expect a joint to be. Getting a perfect splice right in the middle, randomly is.... challenging? Not quite impossible, but pretty close.

    Frank Ford covers it a bit here on this article from
    "Bargain instruments are no bargains if you can't play them". These are the words of J. Garber.
