would a superglue, gorilla glue or something of this nature be able to get the job done? I'm looking at the goatskin and maybe a super glue from hobby lobby. I think it will allow me to get the detail on the grip before I put the shroud over it. Thoughts?!

Yes it would work, but it cures way faster so may be harder to get shape.. with that said I just tried my first wrap last night. Here is the results after it cured for 24 hours and I aged and added color highlights to the leather. This is what I got i'm super pleased with how clean it turned out. I'm considering adding another strip of leather above the power on and between the top groves but I'm still not sure.

It's easy mix two equal parts and then follow the video guide. Since it's 30min it will take a but before you move on to each part.

I'm looking at the 4"x6" leather sampler from http://peggysuealso.com. For those who have done some leather wraps, would this be good to work with? It'd also give me a cache to use on future projects.
