mikevirok Posted December 20, 2008 Report Share Posted December 20, 2008 Hey all; I've been MIA for quite some time. Things at the repair shop over the past year have been craZy (any VERY busy too). But alas I am back during the holidays to pick your brains a bit! A buddy of mine bought an old Mosrite 335-ish guitar. The frets are really worn down and since he is a semi-professional touring musician, we concluded that a refret would be in order. Now I've done quite a few refrets in my time as a luthier, but not yet one on a "zero-fret" guitar. In general, I'm thinking that using a slightly larger fret wire for this fret may be in order, but when I think about a normally constructed guitar, as long as the guitar is set-up properly, wouldn't the same height/size fret used on a zero fret work just as well with less need to address lowering the nut (in this case zero-fret) action? Anyone with experience in a zero-fret job, let me know your approach. Greatly appreciated as always fellas. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
