    I know we normally discuss basses, but here's my first foray into guitars...

    Bound Ebony fretboard
    White Limba neck
    Alder Body...

    Just started rough sanding this morning. Will do some "finish" sanding this evening, and get ready to do the routing. by the way this is all just spare wood I had laying around, and will be painted hence the runs and knots not being a problem ;)

    I have stainless frets on a warmoth neck/guitar that I have and I like 'em. I hear a lot of ppl talk crap about 'em, but to each his own.
    So, what's yur secret to fretting? :smug:
