The latest episode of Atkin Guitars’ series of workshop videos is here, covering the binding process for acoustic guitars.

The video is the eighth in the series of fly-on-the-wall documentaries about the workings of the Atkin Guitars workshops. Other video topics include how tonewood is selected, how Atkins guitars are finished and how an acoustic guitar’s neck is fitted. There’s also an extensive setup tutorial, so you can get your acoustic playing just right.

Atkins also notes that it encourages viewer comments, especially ideas for future episodes. If you’ve got something you’d like to see from the team at Atkin Guitars, head over to the latest episode and leave a comment.

Check out the episode on binding below. New episodes are released every Thursday at 7 PM.
