"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 :)"

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I love music, but often it feels like the bar is too high for a lot of folks to get into the hobby. I LOVE anything that democratizes music, makes it accessible for anyone to play and sing - CBGs are an amazing example of accessible analog music. They're beautiful, they express so much of the creator's personality, and they're so simple to play - plus, the history is incredible. I love woodworking, so it's a perfect fit.
