    I have a fretless Warmoth neck that is just great. Wondering how their fretwork is on the fretted necks?

    One persons "perfect fret work" is another's "needs work"

    I bought a maple/maple neck from them back in 2004 with a gloss finish. The finish was shot directly onto the frets and not cleaned at all. Once I took some fine steel wool and a polishing cloth to the fret, everything looked and played great. It was weird seeing the finish not cleanly removed from the frets, but it ended up not being a big deal.

    Simply playing the neck will knock the finish off of the frets

    I find it quite relaxing to sit in front of the TV and scrape the finish off the frets with my fingernails
