Re-Fretting

It’s been slow going with this one as I’ve had a few other jobs to take care of but we’re getting there. Here you can see the board has been levelled, the fret slots cleaned out and the frets over bent and roughly cut to size. There has been some minor chipping of the fretboard when the frets came out but nothing that requires filling in my opinion as the new frets are 3mm wide and cover any minor defects. It’s alarming when you see chips coming off the board for the first time but with Rosewood I’ve found it to be pretty much unavoidable. I’d be interested to hear of your experiences if this is something you’ve had better success with.
