Has anyone used inlay banding such as Rockler has for the center seam on the back? I had seen this another time whilst shopping for a previous project. Seems like it could be viable. Just getting your thoughts/input.

Yes, Though I personally have never used it, many people do and it really dresses up your guitar.

I've used it on all four of my guitars so far.I buy mine at woodcraft-yea it's a little expensive per piece and it's real thin(Most are about .040 thick so you have to be carefull). Did I mention fragile??? It's real fragile as well .I believe KARIN ROST of Germany is the real maker of this stuff-google them sometime they make all kinds of stuff.I like it!!!! It's pretty.

If I inlay pearl on the back I like to use a poly filler then I pull that inlay my pearl by lifting that out. This way all my pearl matches. I only do the backs if I am building a higher end custom

That stuff is WAY to fragile to use as binding.Unless you have the supercosmicthingamajig bender I don't see that happening.
