Weird colour Frets


Recommended Posts

One thing Ilearned the hard way about steel wool... Tape over your pickups before using it. a tiny little strand will stick to them, and will probably work down where you can't reach it, and it will cause some stange noises as it vibrates! Other than that, steel wool is probably the way to go.

I make cardboard covers to go over the body of any guitar I work on. At least the area between the bridge and neck, plus around the neck, etc. I make them out of any thin cardboard I can find, like cereal boxes, etc. Never had any steel wool get on the pickups since I've been doing this. If you have to get aggressive with a coating on the frets, using just tape to protect the fret-board will not be enough. make some fret-board protectors out of soda can aluminum.
