dousty Posted July 21, 2007 Report Share Posted July 21, 2007 Hi guys. I'm not a builder but I do like to tinker with guitars. I am hoping one of you wise people could offer me some advice. Earlier this year I bought a "strat" from a shop in the USA (I'm Australian). It's pretty hard to get a good apprasial over then net but it looked sound. Anyway, once I got it here and gave it a good setup it played fairly well. My problem though is the high sliping off the fret board. It seems to me that the frets have too greater a chamfer un them and that makes the string slid off the board. The low E seems to be spaced the same distance from the edge of the board but I dont have the same trouble using it. IThat may well have to do with the different way in which that string is played. Here are a few pics that may help the description. My question is...what do I do to fix it? I'm guessing a re-cut nut that takes the string way from the edge won;t work and that leaves a re-fret. Thanks guys. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
