This isn't news to the pros but I'm pretty proud of myself. On the liner notes of one of Marcus Millers CD's, there's a closeup of his ash Jazz with the bound neck. The frets were dressed round this way. I hadn't ever seen that before - usually it was just a variation on the rounded slope. Then when I stumbled onto John Pearses site, he had a mention of how he accomplished the effect by rounding the fret ends before installing them in the slots. Undaunted I started goofing around with a neck here in the shop and figured out that I could do it pretty easily right on the instrument with just a flat file. It doesn't take that long so I think I'll just incorporate it into all of my fretwork when I can. It really feels good.
