Fretboard inlays


Recommended Posts

This has been discussed on here many times so do a search for in depth answers to inlaying with frets and what tools to use.

The short answer to can inlay be done with frets in is:

Yes, it can, but not easily and not well.

It will take you longer to level and polish an inlay with frets in than it will to remove the frets and refret afterwards and you'll still only end up with a halfassed job.

Frets must come out for a professional job.

Go to the tutorials section and start there. There is a lot to begin with!
