• Supporting Membership Changes

    The Supporting Memberships are currently being updated moving forward.

    In order to coordinate giveaway drawings to the Supporting Members there will be a new alignment in the naming of the tiers. (Note: Non-Supporting (Basic) and Monthly Supporting Members can get into the drawings by mailing a postcard. Details on that will follow with a giveaway starting soon).

    The pricing for each Supporting Membership level remains the same though the naming of them will change. The privileges remain the same as current but with the new name. If you are a current Supporting Member, you will be upgraded automatically for the existing term of your Supporting Membership. We are introducing a new tier with new perks.

    Table here

    Supporting Membership Guide

    • Monthly Supporting Members will remain Supporting Members
    • Current annual Supporting Members will now be Silver Supporting Members. Perks and permissions remain the same
    • Current Silver Supporting Members will now be Gold Supporting Members
    • Current Gold Supporting Members will now be Platinum Supporting Members
    • A new level will be created - Double Platinum Supporting Members

    All memberships will now have the option to remain as non-recurring memberships or choose reccuring memberships moving forward. *Note: current memberships will NOT be changed to recurring memberships.

[FONT=Verdana, Arial]I've had this fantastic Nocaster Relic for a several weeks now and I've been wild about the tone, feel and even the looks, but dem tinyass frets was givin me fits!

I dropped it off last week at my local superluthier's and had him pop on a set of bigguns. Best $140 I've spent all year!

The fret height went from .033 to .057 and now Flack is a very VERY happy boy ;)

Thanks! This guy really does excellent work at a very reasonable price. It's my 4th refret with him, and it really makes all the difference in the world if you like to do a lot of bending.

What does a fret job cost if I may ask? How often do you replace em for wear? I have a 25 year old LP with original frets, someone told me a few years ago I should get a fret job...

Peace

Scott: A local guy (Fort Worth, TX) named Mark Cigainero. He quotes $175 but I give him a lot of work, so he gives me a discount. Turnaround was exactly one week (a holiday week at that!). I don't know if he does any non-local work that involves shipping, etc. but email me and I'll give you his number.

What size are those?! Man they are tall.

That price is cheap!!!! I wish there was someone that cheap around here. Going rate is $300-400!

Yeah they are pretty tall for me. I am afraid I would fret chords out of tune with those. Bet they bend great though and with all that height you can recrown them like 87 times before you need to refret again!

Hah! They are 6105's and I have it strung with 10's. The neck was very true and straight so he only had to pull a couple thousandths off for a dress. 6105 is speced at .055 tall but this roll was .059. Maybe his digital mic was off a little, but they do look and feel a little taller than a couple of other factory 6105 guitars I have.

...those look like railroad ties.....but, I like' em.....

...I didnt realize it was so cheap......there have been many 'a guitar that I didn't buy because it had teeny frets....if I would have known that it was so cheap to get it done, I may have bought a few of them......

I will keep this in-mind with my future purchases....
