    Birthday gift from google

    Happy Birthday! You have a couple on me, but, I'm close. I'll be 68 in January. We're pushing 70. If I knew I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself (I doubt it).

    Frets won't seat

    Decided to have the refret done. How often am I going to do refret jobs? Anyway, here she is. Done for now. Plays and sounds great, after an alnico3 magnet swap. That's a Les Paul case. These aren't supposed to fit a Les Paul case. Fits perfectly. Even sits correctly in the neck supports. Home...

    Frets won't seat

    No I didn't. Never knew that. Thanks. I'm going to pull the frets and try again. The guitar came with super jumbos, so I have a lot of fret yet. I'll give that a try. If they are still loose,I may get the fret crimper. Thanks, everyone.

    Frets won't seat

    My fret job failed. Most of the frets wouldn't seat flat against the fret board. I radiused the board (12 inch radius) and bought the properly radiused frets. I recut the fret slots deep enough and still they would't sit properly.Why? I was going to settle with it, but, because the frets are off...

    fret board damage

    They were definitely distracting to the touch. I didn't play it with them because it was a husk when I bought it,but, I think it would have bothered most people, they were deep.
