erikbojerik Posted August 1, 2004 Report Share Posted August 1, 2004 This is my first neck with jumbo frets, 16" radius; everything is set up and intonated well. I levelled and dressed the frets without taking much off the top, and I love the feel of them up high when soloing, etc etc. The problem is, at frets 1-9 I find that all my notes and chords are sharp, because I really like to "grab" the neck when playing down there and the finger pressure to the fretboard makes everything sharp. If I finger the chords lightly, they are fine, but that doesn't come naturally at all. So, do you see any problems with just knocking down the height of frets 1-9 (gradually) and adjusting the nut slots? Or is it more complicated than that? Thanks for any help you can give.
