    I've seen wire frets on squareneck Dobros before. Gotta know where you are somehow and that's as good away as any.

    Wirw Frets on Lap Steel

    Yes, it's different, but there were a small few that did it. I don't know if it's just me but the wire frets on this one keep me more where I need to be. My painted ones seem to be approximations, which is fine since anyone playing a lap steel should go by the sound rather than by any markers.
