I have to confess this is mostly just an excuse to show off my handiwork as I'm so pleased with it, but also an encouragement for anyone thinking of trying this on their own guitars. I'm the kind of person who is not to be trusted with power tools (or any tools for that matter... I'm just not that practical). Anyway, I put together a partscaster last year with a Fender Fat 51 U neck. It buzzed bending at the 15th, and I could only get rid of it with a high action, so thought I would invest in a few tools and have a go at fretwork. So I bought a levelling beam, triangular file with safe edges, a fret rocker, notched edge and plenty of sandpaper along with some micromesh... It all cost less than the guy I normally use charges for a level and crown. I bought a really cheap Strat copy to start on, and the results were a lot better than I expecting. Levelling the frets didn't worry me that much, but I wasn't sure I would be up to crowning them. I worked my way through Ron's excellent sticky thread, along with a ton of YouTube videos.... Next I did my son's Squier Strat, and again they came out ok... So moving on I did the first of my two partscasters, and then finally plucked up the courage to do the one with the fender neck. They're all much better as a result. I picked up a Baja last week which had a bit of fretwear, not horrific, but enough to bug me. It also has a high fret... I did feel a little apprehensive about doing this one as I'd not previously had to tackle any significant wear, but I took my time, went to through all the paper grades to 2500, and then continued with about 5 grades of micromesh, and finished off with some polish. I'm stunned by the results, I've had a pro level and crown done on a couple of guitars previously, and without blowing my trumpet too much my job on this one really feels comparable. So, I guess the point of this thread is.... If you're thinking about having a go, do it! All the information you need is in Ron's thread and YouTube (although you have to weed out the bad advice on YouTube)... Buy a beater or two to start with, it will give you the confidence to realise it's not as daunting as it might feel. And the results are so satisfying, this is the Baja I did yesterday, the guitar plays like a dream now.
