As TAR showed in the pic, binding the grip would be massively difficult for many reasons and in the end would look like crap. I think that faux binding ala the RG3120 and most all of the J-customs would be the way to go.
Have the body built with a maple cap, paint it, then sand the paint away at the edges and grip to expose the cap. If it's being painted, the cap wouldn't even have to be bent around the arm contour. That area could be removed during CNC and not make any difference. I think that's the way I would do it.
