Fret work

Frets unfortunately don't last forever and when they're starting to cause buzz and intonation issues, it's best to get them repaired sooner rather than later. A fret dressing can give your existing frets a fresh profile for no buzz and excellent action. If they're a little more worn, then refretting is the next step and gives your guitar a fresh start and the option to change your fret profile and material if you so choose. Bring your guitar or bass in for an assessment and find out just how good your guitar can play. 

Fret dress including setup - $300

Fret dress includes; level and crown frets, polish frets to mirror like finish, remove any sharp edges on the frets, perform full setup and recut the nut slots to the right height for new fret height. In the event of frets being loose, gluing and clamping may be necessary and charged separately. 

Spot level and crown - $80 per fret

If you have a single fret that is higher than the others and causing buzz and affecting the potential action available, we can level and crown frets on an individual basis on top of the standard setup costs.

Refrets - POA

When your frets are worn beyond a certain point, the only option left is a refret. If your frets just don't do what you want them to, a different material or fret size can make your guitar feel like a whole new one. Nickel silver frets, stainless steel frets and Evo Gold frets are all available. We can also do sideways fret removal on pre 1982 Fender guitars. All refrets include a new hand fabricated bone or Graphtech nut and full setup.
