You guys who are adding on the binding, after the contouring is done, have got it backwards. What I would like to see is a fully, conventionally bound double bound T body, where the "craftsman" removes the offending wood and binding as a later step, and obliterates the binding in some areas (careful not to tear any of the binding loose). I think that would have real gravitas. I fail to see what the fascination is in a nonstop, continuous band. So what it is tapers down and ends, only to restart later on? Everyone knows it isn't "real" binding like an acoustic. Who will be the first one to do it? Or, who has done it already?
