I'm wondering why is frets installed over the binding THE way that is taught? It seems to me that if you just cut the fret short, to fit within and right up to the binding edge, it would feel much smoother running your hand up and down the neck, rather than frets right up to the edge of the neck. Plus, I need to buy a special tool, or tools if I buy one for small, medium and large fret wire, to trim the tang to fit over the binding. And no, I don't believe the 2mm of extra fret not being there is going to cause your strings to slip off the fretboard. How is installing fret over the binding better? It's seems like a lot of extra work and hassle for something that's really just cosmetic.
