Quick fret question

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I asked this question in a recent thread about fret life, but I think it got lost in the mix.

 

Just a simple question: I THINK I need new frets on my acoustic - twenty years of play - but I am not sure. So, how does one know when a refret is needed? What are the symptoms?

 

Thanks!

Jeff

Fretting out.

Excessive fret buzz

Un level frets ect'.

 

I use a certified straight edge and run them across the frets.

A lot of people look at their frets and see wear on them and think this means they need a refret. It does not.

However, the signs AXE has listed above may mean a refret is needed.
