1/16" Black Stringing. Exactly 1/16" wide and made from black dyed pear wood. I had previously been making this from Gaboon ebony, but it was too fragile and inconsistant. I am now making it from black dyed pear; a straight grained wood, and is actually blacker than ebony. This has another advantage over ebony, in that it is much more flexible and can be easily dry-bent around a radius of about 8". If bent on a heated pipe or hot soldering iron, it will bend to a much tighter radius.
