Hi folks. Again here with another question to help me in my quest to buy a new ibanez guitar.

What purpose, if any, does binding on the neck of a guitar do? Does it affect anything sonically or is it only for cosmetic purposes?

Thanks =)

Mostly cosmetic, but it also protects the neck.
It's almost completely cosmetic, but if you're getting binding on a neck it's gotta be flame maple wood binding or the pearloid binding you see on Universes.
Gotta agree with that. Flame maple binding is the sweetest!
