Ignore the uncut frets and the super-wide nut. Anyone notice anything strange about this one?

Hi James, is it that you are actually using fretwire and have now found how much less work it is than all the ideas listed in your other thread posted earlier. Ha ha.

Give those old timers a bag of nails, length of fence wire and a packet of fretwire, and see what they give you back. 

I do admire the builders that use old and traditional methods though, a great way to learn and appreciate more modern approaches. 

Im probably wrong..........next question.


Well, I did use fret wire, but that's not it. Guess again... It's not the box.

I know, I know, you forgot to put the fingerboard on and put the frets into the neck by mistake in your excitement. If that's not it, I'm not playing anymore.



Open, 3, 5, 6, 7, 10, 12

It's a learning tool.
