Hi Mordacai.

  I have been having trouble fretting and yes I am a newbie. :)  But brave and jump in. LOL Anyway Keith Standford sent me to you. 

PJ - Send a message to Mordacai Bondurant here on CBNation and ask him to email you a picture of the neat little homemade gadget he made to straighten curved Fret Wires and also to insure both curve & straight Fret Wires stay in place on the ends.

As a matter of fact, it might make sense for you to just go ahead and pick up his GittyMan CBG Making Manual.

So I guess I am here asking help and I also checked out your site and as soon as my money uploads to pay pal I plan on purchasing your book.  Your right on the overload!!  I have read and seen so much  I am not sure where to go.   The fretting seems to be my biggest issue.  They seem to hump in the middle.  The wire is curved. And I got it from CBGitty.  Anyway I hope your book will help.  Just wanted to introduce myself.
