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.
