"...but you're gonna have to serve somebody"*
Here Tim is serving the Bodhisattvas of Binding by crouching on the floor with a Les Paul clamped between his knees to painstakingly scrape excess material to match the shape of the guitar body. The close-up photos show a portion of the guitar (prior to him being on his knees with it) after having the new binding heated, bent, glued, taped and clamped to the carefully cleaned and prepared edge of the body using small pieces of wood fabricated to match the curves.
