Found along the front, back, and sides of acoustic, hollow, and semi-hollowbody guitars, binding is commonly made of a wood, plastic, or fiber, and serves to strengthen the edges of the guitar, where the top and back meet the sides. Binding is also used along the edges of the neck where it meets the fingerboard. Guitar makers often use binding or inlaid trim (purfling or marquetry) as a form of decoration.
