1986 Fender MIJ Telecaster - refret, shape new bone nut, install new saddles, setup.

I think I'm sold on these Japanese Telecasters from the 80's.  I've repaired a few of them now and haven't been turned off yet.  This one needed a refret and the customer chose stainless steel as the material of the frets.  It's a much harder metal than the standard nickel/silver frets and will last longer.  It does tend to sound a little brighter than nickel. But on a twangy telecaster, I think it's a match.  I recommended the Callaham compensated saddles to the customer so that the intonation will be more accurate.  A new bone nut was shaped and it was setup with .10's.
