fret lines

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by poor_gear_whore, Oct 27, 2005.

  1. What process is used to apply fret lines and or side markers? I am looking at purchasing a used fretless neck. The board is ebony. Any help would be great

    Well, the first thing you would have to do is precisely lay it out as if you were doing frets. Then, on ost better lined necks, they actually saw in grooves for frets, then use wood veneer to fill the groove, held in with superglue. Sand to your desired finish.
