Guitar Fret Level
A Fret Level or Fret dress is the process in which a guitar’s frets are leveled to the same height. This is necessary when a guitar’s frets are not perfectly even, or when they’re worn or grooved from playing. This is an extremely common procedure and many players have a fret dress every few years or so, depending on how they play and how hard they are on their frets.
You may even find your brand new guitar has uneven frets straight from the factory. Most guitar manufacturers pump out hundreds, if not thousands of guitars every day and many pass through quality control poorly set up and with bad fret work.
All our fret work is carried out on the Stew Mac Erlewine Neck Jig, which allows for extremely accurate leveling.
