pearl binding on uv777bk

Hey guys, I have a 99 uv777 and the binding has aged a little.

I am wondering if its possible to restore the binding to how it was when new, or newer... its in 95% condition other than this, pretty damn good for its age.

Oh I always wanted to know how bindings like the UV777 one looked like when aged.
Could you post a pic?

Re: pearl binding on uv777bk

I doubt you can do anything except live with it. I'm fairly certain it's because they use the cheapest possible material to do the binding with and it simply yellows with age (or UV exposure). It is the same celluloid that the Fender Pearl guitar picks are made from. The inlay behind the trem is what the binding should be made of......
