Hey all - long time lurker, first post. Built my 2nd CBG, but have low frets (argh). If I remove and replace, any suggestions about how to fill the gaps?

Thanks much!

If you remove them carefully, then you should be alright. But you’ll for surely have to glue in the new frets? Good luck on the refret :)

A picture would help others to see what the problem is. Top and side view. is best.

Hi, could be uneven fingerboard, check that also.

Ahh., CBN is back to deleting responses.,,. Check them all with a straight edge., maybe you could level them all to get rid of the low spots,.

It's back to not showing me photos too.

I’ll check, thanks! I’ll try to post a picture, too.
