Adding block inlays- refret neccesary?

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by bassteban, Feb 23, 2008.

  1. I'd like to add block inlays to my Jazz 5. Unless at least a dozen experienced inlay folks tell me any moron could do it, I'd have it done. My question, per the title, is would I have to have it refretted at the same time?
  2. no you wouldn't need a re-fret because the blocks don't interfere with frets, but a fret job couldn't hurt

    Good luck leveling the inlays down with the frets in the way, it will be pretty time consuming that way.
  4. That's what I figured, & time is one thing I have very little of(excessive TB activity notwithstanding..). :D
