My second guitar on its way. With this I used 2 neck pieces inside the box to get solid body and enough room for pickups. I am planning to make my first own single coil pickups.

Have you used any glue with frets or have you just hammered them in?

Keen to see the finished instrument. Same as David, I position fret wire and tap in with luthier fretting hammer.

Looking good.

Simply tap the fret wire in place with a hammer, preferably a dead blow hammer, or use an offcut of wood to protect the frets.
