    Never used a guitar with steel frets. I think they might make a difference to the sound. I know they are great for longevity. But the prospect of leveling/crowning/polishing them fills me with dread!

    They came perfect from the factory, and I hope they stay that way.

    Guitar is my 7th instrument, and I still have a lot to learn. I'll leave anything other than simple maintenance to a guitar tech.

  2. I got more fret wear on my old guitar than freboard wear. It was an LTD faux-les-paul. My Parker came with hardened stainless steel frets, and I've been gigging that guitar for a few years and it still shows no fret wear.

    Guitar is my 7th instrument, so I'm sure I'm doing a lot of things wrong. I play it on about 1/3 of the songs we do, depending on the gig it could be more or less. I played bass for a few years, so the freboard wasn't exactly a stranger. Sax/wind synthesizer gets the bulk of the rest of the songs, a couple on the flute and vocals on about half our songs.

    Of course that has nothing to d with ebony fretboards

    For the experts in guitar maintenance: How often should I oil the fretboard?

    There- back on topic.
