How have the frets on your Custom Shop Telecaster worn? Have they been reworked or replaced and, if yes, how long was it before such maintenance was required? Details are below as to why I am asking for this information. Thanks Recently my Fender Custom Shop Postmodern NOS Telecaster started ringing when either the D or G strings were plucked while not fretted and when playing an open G cord at the 4th fret with a capo on the 3rd fret. After changing pickups, saddles, strings, tuners and bridge plate in a failed self-effort to resolve the issue; the only thing left was the nut which I had replaced and this cleared up some of the ringing but not enough to be playable without having an annoying ring (also picked up in recordings). I contacted Fender Customer Care and was directed to Ron Pace Guitar Repair in Houston, TX for evaluation. I know Ron and over the years have had him setup my guitars so I knew that if anyone could find the issue he could. Ron did a complete setup and got rid of 90+% of the ringing but concluded that I needed a complete fret job to get rid of all the ringing. We called Fender warranty and (as you might guess) they said the frets were not a warranty covered part. Well I knew this but I requested they replace them under warranty as I only had the guitar less than 2 years and aside from a couple of “Open Mic’s” didn’t gig with it with mainly only home use a few hours a week. In my opinion the frets shouldn’t have worn to a point where they needed to be replaced in such a short time and not heavily played (Ron also found it unusual to have such fret wear on a Custom Shop guitar that was less than two years old even if it was gigged regularly). Fender has said they will review the issue and get back to Ron with their decision. That was yesterday so we will see how it goes.
