Wish me luck

Postby guitarslim101 » Tue Jan 27, 2009 5:54 pm

I can't stand the tiny little frets on my old Airline anymore, so I'm going to refret it at work today with some jumbo frets. Hopefully it'll all go well, but it's a bound neck, which will just mean extra work, and there isn't an adjustable truss rod so hopefully it won't warp.

And I haven't been around for a while, busy with school and work and the lady, but I think I'll be on a bit more again.

I have no fear working on my guitars, but that seems like a scary task. Best of luck!

I got all the frets in (had a bit of a challenge getting a few to stay), so all that's left now is leveling, dressing, etc. Should be good as new tomorrow.
