You may think that your guitar needs a re-fret when actually the old frets just need 'dressing' (levelling). This cures fret buzz and dead notes caused by the grooves worn in old frets, or from loose frets (loose frets will need securing before they can be levelled) that have risen up. Sometimes a fret has a groove or dent caused by string contact after an impact. Providing the groove or dent is not too deep, the frets can be dressed and the guitar will play like new - often better than new!
Frets are secured if found to be loose (at extra cost, see rates page) and the frets are then levelled, crowned, and polished. PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM CURRENTLY CHANGING MY POLICY AND PRICING STRUCTURE REGARDING FRET LEVELLING AND SETUPS. A DETAILED ARTICLE WITH BE PUBLISHED HERE ASAP!
