Omega Posted February 4, 2008 Report Share Posted February 4, 2008 I just performed my first refret (bolt on 7-string Ibanez). After paying close attention to all of the 'how to' books, I'm still left with what a appears to be a problem (to me at least). After hammering in the fret wire, I've noticed there are some small spaces at the edges of the fret board (between the fret wire and the fret board). This spacing issue does not inflict all of the frets; mostly the upper frets. The space is about .25 mm or so. Please be aware the fret wire is NOT loose whatsoever, despite the spaces. I'm wondering if these spaces are a problem? I've done my best to eliminate them (ie, re-bend the wire, glue, etc.). However, the small spaces don't seem to go away. Based on your experiences, please let me know if you believe if I'm okay and can move on to the leveling process, or if I need to fix the spacing problem. Thanks.
