"Mikko 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."

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?
