    My '64 needs some fretwork. My regular guy is not a Fender specialist. Looking for someone who can do a great, clean job that will look cosmetically right. Who do you trust with your vintage Tele refrets?

    Ron Kirn lives in FL. Not sure if he does this sort of thing, but it might be worth your time to find out.

    I don't mind shipping the guitar. The Erlewine video was interesting to see.

    My `68 was refretted/plek`d by Glaser in Nashville. Plays incredibly good!

    Maybe Scott Lentz could help you out as well?

    Holger Notzle (Hogy) from Komet Amplifiers in Louisiana does outstanding work on vintage instruments. Give him a call, great guy to talk with!!

    Mike Lull of The Guitar Works in Bellevue, WA. Does phenomenal work, has over 30 years experience and a strong knowledge of vintage instruments (esp Fender) plus he's a nice guy to boot… & has a PLEK too.

    He refretted my '66 Tele (maple cap) and did a Fab job.
