  • LP Refret Back From Philtone

    Holy sheeeet! It was worth the two-month wait.



    Had stainless Jescar medium-jumbo put on my '84 Custom. It's like a whole new guitar. But it stills has that thick low-end and mean, growly mids. But everything is so clear! It sounds like a piano! I'm so so so so so so so happy right now. Plays like a dream. Every note is clear and rings. My amps sound better, too. They dig in and scream. Harmonics are easier. Everything is just awesome.



    Through my VH4 with BKP Black Dogs, my rig sounds like a high-gain piano.



    Will be sending my other Silverburst to Phil as well.

    Glad it turned out for you... how much does a SS refret run these days?

              Sounds like it was worth the wait. I've read a lot of good things about that guy/place. I'd love to have a LP with SS frets.

                  To the OP, did your guitar originally have the little binding nibs on the neck covering the fret ends? If so do you miss not having them there?



                  Ive been contemplting for months sending my Hamer Monaco Superpro to Philtone for a full SS refret/Plek/new nut, but I love the look and feel of the neck binding covering the fret ends...

                    Yes, it had fret nibs. No, I do not miss them.

                      And you have more fret area to boot so more toanz.



                      Once you try stainless you can't go back

                        I would love to have SS frets installed on my LP, but I'm afraid someone will do a hack job on it. Where is Philtone located? After 10 years of pretty hard playing, my LP is ready for a refret. The refret on your Custom looks amazing! Congrats.

                          Those fret ends are gorgeous. The mark of a quality job.

                              Phil re-fretted my #1 about 7 or 8 years ago. It had reached the point where it just wasn't the guitar I reached for to play, too many dead spots; and the re-fret was a resurrection. Since it had the original '70's "school bus" frets, it plays better now than it ever did.
