Re-frets: *All re-frets include the Deluxe+ setup at no extra charge.

*Note- You may notice quite a large variance in what luthiers charge for re-frets. I don’t care to count the number of nasty fret jobs i’ve encountered and had to resurrect from disaster. Not just instruments that have been left playing poorly but have had their lasting value degraded by poor fretting techniques, damaged finishes and chipped fretboards. We don’t just pull out your old frets and throw some new ones in. The fingerboard itself will be level sanded/radiused and polished to bring it, quite possibly for the first time to a truly level foundation for your new frets. Frets are then perfectly levelled, crowned, dressed and polished to a finish so slick you won’t believe!

Any Nickel-Steel fret size of your choice. +$30 for Stainless Steel frets
