    Hi there, everyone :)

    I've recorded some footage of me setting up an Epiphone SG G-400, and I thought I'd share it with you all! Might be of use to someone here, or atleast fun for someone to watch.

    Part 1 - Fret Level Preparation:


    Part 2 - Fret Level Preparation:


    Part 3 - Fret Level.


    Part 4 - Re-crowning the Frets.


    There'll be some more videos coming, so I'll keep this thread updated :)

    Thanks & Enjoy, good people!

    Part 5 - Polishing the Frets:


    There's nothing better than perfectly polished up frets!
    They're smooth and nice to bend and slide on! :)
