    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...

    NGPD

    New guitar project day. I sold a 1965 Melody Maker awhile back and have missed it ever since. SO, I bought a project Melody Maker husk. It's even my favorite color. It has a headstock repair. The front looks pretty good the back of the neck, not so much. Plan is to build a player. My old one was...

    Blush remover?

    I've decided to paint a project guitar Duplicolor pearl white. Just to be prepared. I was wondering if there is a place locally, as in paint stores or home improvement stores, I can buy blush remover in a spray can? Also, How much time do I have IF I do get blushing? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Set to spec?

    Just was wondering if most of you set your pickups to factory spec's. Personally I don't. Most of my pickups and even setup are not at spec. I set everything where it sounds and feels like I like it. In the same vain. Do you set your amp up with everything at 12:00 like most articles and videos...

    What wood is this?

    I bought an Epi ES339 P90 Pro. The website said the finger board was rosewood. It's almost black in color. Can this be Ebony? Attached is a picture of the board. Shows the grain and color. Just curious. Any expert opinions? Should I ask in the luthier section?

    NGD Finally

    Finally got my new ES339 P90 Pro. Picked it up late this evening. Got home about 10:00 PM. Adjusted the action (needs a little more adjustment) and pickup height (before realizing the amp was on the gain channel). I'm a bit tired,so, please excuse the stupidity. There is a slight finish flaw on...

    Update on NGD

    Well, I should be getting my ES339 P90 Pro tomorrow (after 1.5 months). Seems that that guitar is now a CG/ Musicians Friend exclusive. :facepalm: Since I ordered it before this situation the rep is pulling it from GCs order. Thanks to Mark at Big Apple Music for standing up for me and my order...

    ES 339 P90 Pro?

    Just ordered a new ES 339 P90 Pro (like the photo below) and case. What are your opinions on them? Actually don't know if I like the neck profile ' but, I like the guitar itself. Had store credit and they couldn't get me a Nighthawk which I was not sure about either, but, wanted to try.
