Greg Voros--Fret Maintenance
Greg Voros--Fret Maintenance
 The foundation of every great setup is the guitar’s fretwork. After long periods of play, the frets on your guitar can eventually wear. Once the wear is visible, the guitar is likely to develop fret buzz as well as intonation problems. If left unattended, the guitar will eventually refuse to stay in tune with itself. This lesson covers a couple of the most common fret maintenance, called a fret dress or a grind and polish. You’ll have your frets looking and playing like new in no time.
