Fret Work

This is one of the most crucial services for any fretted instrument.

A badly worn fret or poorly seated fret tang can render the instrument unplayable and lead to fret buzz, intonation and tuning problems, string choking and friction across the frets.

We cover

  • fret leveling
  • fret recrowning
  • polishing frets for smoother string bends
  • fingerboard repairs, including inlays
  • wood conditioning
  • reseating frets
  • complete refret jobs

We take into account the radius of the fingerboard, the fret wire size and dimensions and even the choice of wood used for the fret board.
