Fret Removal Innovation?


Recommended Posts

And even if you got it really smooth - sooner or later the you would be ale to feel the frets again, remember that wood and metal expand and contract at different rates.


And wood and metal wear differently. I am assuming that you are thinking of doing this for a fretless bass or similar. Ste strings will soon wear out the wood, leaving the tang of the fret standing proud of the wood. The right thing to do is to remove the frets, glue in a different coloured veneer (or maybe plastic) and then level everything.
