Wolf...What kind of binding on fingerboard?

Basically that`s the question. Was it brass? I think Tiger had brass binding. Thanks in advance!

Yes it's a brass strip bound with ebony. Below that is a strip of alternating maple, purpleheart and ebony blocks.

there is no brass on the fretboard. Ebony /holly/purpleheart/holly . The same binding is used around the the headstock but the ebony is thinner.

Irwin: "The fingerboard is made of gaboon ebony and has twenty-four frets. It is bound on each side with four laminations of maple, purpleheart and ebony."

More specifically, the binding (moving from the inner to the outer edge) is maple, purpleheart, maple and ebony. The maple/purpleheart/maple segment is roughly the same width as the outer ebony segment, perhaps a tiny bit wider.

I stand corrected! I built mine thinking it was brass but opted to use a lamination of maple/ebony/maple as it was easier. So my mistake was closer to original after all :-) thanks for the correction.

Leo at SFG sells a few different types of that marquetry.
