Benefits to Stainless Steel frets

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Groovecenter, Jun 2, 2003.


  1. Are their any real benefits to having my warmoth neck fretted with stainless steel over the nickle silver? Does the stainless steel really make a big difference in wear, or sound or anything else? Thanks for any information or education you can impart on me, Im just trying to be thorough.
     
  2. Stainless steel is a lot more resistant to wear that the nickle silver. I don't know about the acoustic properties, but you won't need to refret for a long, long time!
