Fret Ends

Recommended Posts

Hi. I've always seemed to have a problem filing the little burr that's under the crown at the end of the fret. Even when I bind a neck and file off the tang, it's still there. I've tried the stew-mac end file, and that gets most of the burr, after playing for a while I can just feel little tugs on a burr. It's not a real huge one just enough to let you know it's there. I usually finish over the fret ends, so I have to wonder if I'm rubbing enough of the finish off to expose the burr? I've tried coming from under the board and sweeping up with the file, but I just can't reach it.
