Black/white/black laminated fiber strip. Above photo is of a Ribbecke quilted maple arched guitar. The shorter lams are used for those who use a stepped binding/purfling ledge cut, or as the trim that shows on the sides, usually laminated to the binding prior to installing. John Greven's method is to add this trim after the binding is already on the "box." Using the top as a reference along with a Dremel tool, he routes a channel just under the binding. He uses a small hammer to tap in the laminate or strip as he works his way around the guitar.
