Recommended Posts

I bought 2007 Gibson SongWriter deluxe EC (secondhand) from shop in my country ( Thailand )

I found it’s not original fret , Old owner refrets to big size like Electric guitar.

I need to refret back to original size , Can U tell me the original frets size for this Model, Thank you

Why do you want to refret it again, out of interest?

Please bear in mind that repeated refretting a guitar repeatedly takes life out of the fretboard, widening the fret slots etc, and that jumbo frets on an acoustic actually work really well-the previous owner of my 1967 J45 had it refretted with jumbo frets and it plays fantastically well. The added bonus of jumbo frets is that they can remain in place for a very long time as there is plenty of material left for fret dressing, recrowning etc.
