Fretting?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Joe Nanzer Oct 14, 2017. 8 Replies

So, yea. I tried using actual frets for a fret board for the first time, needless to say I'm gonna have to scrap it. I can't get the frets to keep from rocking in the slots. Any tips? Anybody?

Zero fret?

Does anyone know what fret wire should I use for a zero fret? If I'm using med/med for frets, what should I use for the zero fret?

Anyone have any ideas on how to cover up a scratch on a paper covered box?

"Yes, the license plate acts as the Resonator. I understand that there is no cone. However, it does give it that likeness."

Hi Joe, how you're doing? Thanks for the request, I liked your CBG #6. I would like to have one just this size, at the moment the only CBG I have is kind of a baritone, and the it was built by a luthier friend of mine it can only be played like a regular guitar, by pressing the strings on the fretboard. Now I'm looking for a new one with higher action, to play with a slide ina more a more spanky way. Do you build guitars only for yourself?
