1.5 mm (0.060") and 1mm (0.040") Thick

These straight strips are cut from solid shell blanks.

We do not sell laminated shell products.

It takes about 70 inches of strips for the purfling on the face of a guitar.

To do a complete D-45-style guitar will require about 300 inches of strips.


For example, 1/8" = .125" exactly, but within tolerances for this part, it can be considered equivalent to 1.5mm or .126" or 1/8"
