Airline Binding Replacement

Binding repair can be challenging, often requiring finish touchup and tedious leveling.  This Airline guitar had the extra challenge of installing the binding under the frets which were installed through the binding.  With a little careful measuring I was able to saw the fret slots and file the binding back to fit snugly under the fret ends and then level the rest to the fretboard.  A little finish touch up and amber aging completed the job.
