This week our tech has received a Fender Stratocaster with worn frets and fingerboard. In need of re-fretting and restoration, here is an insight into process.
The neck has been removed and clamped in place. Let the fun begin!
As the neck has some fingerboard wear it was restored using a radius block and 400 grit until the central areas are uniform (9.5 inch radius).
Each fret slot was then cleaned out with a scalpel and run through with a fretting saw. The top cut was also bevelled ever so slightly with a triangular file. This prevents any loose rosewood chips being drawn into the fret slot when pressing them in.
