If someone wants to take the beautiful neck off their vintage guitar, and put it in the cupboard in case...
thanks mate! Would love to see some pics of your ‘60??
Level and dress wouldn’t have helped, the current frets play great...I just want bigger ones
Kinda funny story on the topic:
My ‘59 Esquire has original frets but recently I looked into getting a refret. The frets aren’t fully worn out...
