Lightbulb Guitar Neck Binding Questions

Hey i bought a neck on the bay, and i was just wondering how abouts i would take the binding on the side of my guitar neck?

It has some wear and tear cracks,


1; I can superglue the small hairline cracks, then sand it down, after i can tape the neck and paint the binding white again, after add some clear coat, the binding would look new!

2; I can take off the binding and replace it with some new binding.

What option would be the best? also if there is other options please let me know

Re: Guitar Neck Binding Questions

It depends on how the frets are installed. If the fret tangs actually cut into the binding, you would need to do a refret and change the binding at the same time. If the frets stop so the binding has no cuts in it, then maybe you could replace it, buts not a job for an inexperienced luthier. I would glue up what you have unless its time for a refret.
