Members seahorse Posted April 26, 2010 Members Share Posted April 26, 2010 Before you say this sounds crazy, I was just thinking about all of those import guitars like Ibanez, ESP, Epiphone, Squire, etc.., that run in the $ 200 - $400 range. You just know the factories aren't spending a lot of time leveling and crowning....it's probably some machine that just stamps the frets in and then sends the guitars out by the truckload. Most of these guitars have pretty good fretwork. Also, lot of refrets appear as if too much of the frets have been filed away before they're finished. It's like three years worth of wear on the frets before you've played a note. In theory, if the neck is really straight; would just tapping in new frets be any different than what a high volume factory would do. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
