A fret board isn't 100% necessary

You *can* fret directly onto your neck piece of wood.  Notice Shane's fretless builds, he burns fret markers directly into the neck wood, and strings her up!  Frets aren't going to weaken the wood. …Continue

Just a heads up Kirk, couldn’t watch your open mic video on my iPad. A lot of us use these, but they block almost all videos posted here unless you post through YouTube. Country Boy Can Survive came through loud and clear, whatever you used on that works! Dang, I wanted to see it, the comments sounded good! Take care my friend!
