    What are my options: I have an old G Anton German made bass that is about 5'2" overall length, and its tail piece is missing its fret... what materials would be a good replacement for the fret.

    I am doing a rough repair job on this for a first instrument, may be interested in restoration later date.

    Any Ideas?
  2. Of course ebony is the preferred choice but any hard wood will work.
