A NOTE ON FRETWORK

Before and after fret dressing.

Over time, the strings on your instrument will damage the frets.  The wear and tear is visible in the form of divots, pits, and a flattened appearance.  A fret dressing involves removing the damage by sanding and filing the frets until they are uniformly level across the fingerboard.  Once they are perfectly flattened, we round-over (crown) the fret and polish them to a high luster.
When frets become too worn, they need to be replaced.  We carefully remove the existing frets with heat.  At this time we address any fingerboard issues.  Then we install new frets and perform a fret dressing..

Fretwork on an instrument has to be impeccable.  The difference between a clear and muted note is thousandths of an inch.
