Diferent Frets In Same Fingerboard


Recommended Posts

You cannot put different height frets.

Well, maybe lower frets on the top, but not the other way around.

As you fret the lower notes, the string will hit the higher frets.

Not good.

The solution you're looking for is called "scalloping".

Scallop the higher frets, and you'll have easier bending.

While that sounds great in theory, what you will have is a buzzing guitar all over the neck... the object is to have a perfectly level fretjob in the first place (and preferably done on a neck jig) or you'll have problems, believe you me.. Now if your talking about wider frets from the 13th fret up, then that's a different story, but as far as height, they must be level!!!
