Can you get binding on the neck and headstock, or just the body?

Surely you can?

Also, besides black and white, what other colors can you get for the binding?

No, they only offer plastic binding on the body, and only on select models (AE185, AC375, and I think the Solo if you give up the forearm contour). And unless things have changed, they only offer a 3-layer binding: Red tortoise, white and black.

They offer painted "binding" in white or black on some models (not all) and they could actually probably do most any color if you're willing to give up the 10-day trial period, but that painted "binding" is also only on the body.

Thank you.
