We specialise in fretwork.
Our work is BETTER than factory standard. We have undertaken literally hundreds of refrets and have a high level of expertise. We use only the best quality american HARD fretwire in all our work. Whatever style of music you play and whatever type of guitar you own.. wear and tear is inevitable. Through time.. frets will wear as will the nut and saddle. One day you'll pick up your guitar and notice that it just isn't playing as well as it used to. It may be buzzing in places and you may have some dead spots on the neck...or a strange rattle or bad intonation. This is inevitable if you play your guitar a lot like some.. or in fact most of my customers. Low.. badly worn frets can result in poor tone and intonation resulting in buzzing notes.. dead spots and fingerboard wear due to strings and fingernails gouging the fingerboard and more often than not.. your capo clamping the strings too tightly against the frets. Get them fixed!
I use only the best quality wire available! Shipped in from the USA.. It is the hardest wire you can get. It's difficult to work with.. but you get the benefit...
...When some idiot refrets your guitar with soft Korean or Japanese wire… you may not be able to tell when you pick the guitar up…but just give it a couple of months.. then the wear will be back !
We cleanly and carefully remove the worn frets.. then prepare the slots before accurately installing the new wire. Careful selection of wire gauge, (I carry over 30 different profiles).. in particular matching tang width to the existing slot.. is ensured before installation. Frets are then precision levelled then reprofiled to ensure accurate intonation before polishing the frets in a 6 stage process to a mirror finish. The guitar is then given a thorough setup. Your guitar now plays better than you would have thought possible!
