Bare with me, I'm greener than a granny smith apple at this. Starting my first build and have watched tons of Glen's videos along with Shanes's. I am making my first CBG fretless and I have all the Gitty templates. Can I use these as guides even though I am going fretless. I will just mark the fret locations based on a video I watched by Dar Stellabotta. Any help will be appreciated..
Cool thanx for the advice.
Sure. And FWIW I only mark a few of the key ones. I've since added the 3rd too.
thanx it looks very nice.
Bill, get a metallic sharpie, if you want a no frills technique? Also wood burned fret markers are equally nice on a fretless slider? Good luck on your build :)
I just finished neck fret markings with a sharpie. I used a walnut neck and used a silver sharpie. These metallic Shapies are awesome. I actually changed the color of metal tuners with them and I mark the side of the neck only, as that is how I see the fret markings, based on how I play.
i have attached some photos of the fret markings and how the metallic Sharpies can change the color of metal.
Btw Brian Q’s idea.
