    StewMac Z-Files for frets - anyone here used them?

    I just don’t see the need for any of that under normal circumstances. The OP who asked about this leveler tool stated that he had never leveled or crowned frets before. This tool and that method will probably not bear the best results for a first timer.

    StewMac Z-Files for frets - anyone here used them?

    I want the neck straight so I adjust the truss Rod and use a straightedge until it is straight before leveling. This tool is a solution to a non existent problem in my opinion. I’m sure the tool could be used as a regular leveler as well so it wouldn’t be useless, but probably costs a lot more...

    StewMac Z-Files for frets - anyone here used them?

    I have not. I don’t see any benefit to it and I can think of a few downsides. I like to mark my fret tops ( and tape the board to protect it) before leveling to ensure that I have leveled all of the frets an equal amount. leaving the strings on would make more work of taping up the pickups so...

    Get Back Documentary (includes spoilers)

    there is that short scene in the third part where John opens his shirt up and she puts it back and they have a little stare. It is quick, but when I saw it my take was that of a jealous/ controlling person. Having been in relationships with jealous/ controlling type people may lead me to...

    The Beatles are overrated

    To the OP…Dig into their music and transcribe some tunes. Their genius is within the tunes. I‘ve never heard of you or heard any of your tunes. Almost everyone I’ve ever met knows the Beatles. I think that speaks for itself. Music that appeals to the masses as well as other musicians across...

    What Is Your Favorite Beatles Album?

    Voted revolver, but the Hey Jude EP, Sgt Peppers, Rubber Soul and Abbey Road are all right there for me. My first Beatles Album was Revolver so that makes me biased towards it.

    StewMac Z-Files for frets - anyone here used them?

    I use a leveling beam that is about 16-18” long and 1” wide. I apply sticky back 220 grit on one side and 400 grit on the other. I use the 220 grit to get it close and the 400 to finish the leveling. The 400 grit helps reduce the amount of time I need to polish the thin strip left after...

    StewMac Z-Files for frets - anyone here used them?

    I have the Centered Z file. I have used it a couple of times. Overall I think it is a great tool for the beginner just getting into crowning frets. There are two different widths on the file. I found I still had to roll the Z file slightly in order to leave the skinny line of untouched...

    Who was your Inspiration for Playing Guitar

    My dad was a Jazz guitarist. So I had always been around guitar and music. After that I had access to a couple of Beatles records, but in the mid 70s Kiss grabbed my ear and I used to play air guitar and sing Kiss songs. All of these factors led up to me wanting to play, but once I heard...

    Vinyl? Really?

    Well, I never listened to Kiss on anything but vinyl. That was my only choice. These days I don’t listen to that crap, but I listen to other crap on vinyl. Not too many of my records tick pop or hiss.

    Vinyl? Really?

    I have a bunch of vinyl LP's and still buy select new releases on Vinyl, but I have had most of the records going all the way back 40 years. I also have enough space to keep all of them. I love playing darts or billiards in our entertainment room and spinning up some music on Vinyl. Saves a...

    Do you do your own setups, or have someone else do it?

    I do everything myself including refrets. Have amassed quite the arsenal of lutherie tools.

    Let's See Those Silverbursts

    I’ve always admired this color scheme from afar. The second dude I took lessons from years ago had an original Siverburst Custom. It was a very cool guitar, but I think I was more impressed with that dude's gig and festival stories than anything he taught me on guitar. Anyway, don’t want to...
