My customer left this guitar for a refret at a large guitar store/repair center in San Antonio (who shall remain unnamed). 8 months later, they had only removed the frets! After bringing it to me, he had her back in less than two weeks! The first picture you'll see is me filling the small chips that occur while pulling the old frets. I fill these with a mixture of the fretboard sanding dust and CA glue. We also radiused the neck to 12" instead of the 10 from the factory.
