You can do fake binding, where you either paint it on or mask off that part of the wood so it's unpainted.

Or you can actually use binding, which is just a strip of some kind of plastic (I think), you rout a channel around the body and glue it in I think.
unless you are an experienced builder I wouldn't attempt to add binding.
A small channel needs to be routed around the edge of the body and the binding gets "super glued" in.
