Guitar Frets - Jumbo vs. Medium vs. Small - Size Comparison
Fret size and fret type have a huge impact on a guitar's playability. I play five guitars with different kinds of frets to discuss the differences between jumbo, medium and small frets.Then, I talk about the importance of flatter frets vs. rounded frets/crowns. Do you like my guitar playing? Check out MY ORIGINAL METAL SONG: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-6Ky1XDt9o&list=PLTohPHqcomy-mYMShcDJmqEzZwC-bKTnj For simplicity, I refer to jumbo, medium and small frets in generic terms. There's a huge variety of fret types -- narrow and tall, wide and short, both wide and tall, etc. -- and it would be impossible to cover all of them. I play the following guitars on this video: 1. ESP M-II with active EMG 81 pickups and original Floyd Rose tremolo 2. Jackson King V KV2 with Seymour Duncan SH-4 and TB-4 pickups, and original Floyd Rose tremolo 3. Vintage B.C. Rich Bich with DiMarzio pickups and Kahler 2300 tremolo 4. Vintage B.C. Rich Mockingbird with DiMarzio pickups and Kahler 2300 tremolo 5. LTD JH-600 with active EMG 81 and 85 pickups and Kahler 2300 tremolo Among other topics, I discuss the following: 1. Distance between the fingertip and fretboard 2. Fret leveling and crowning 3. Fret buzz 4. String action and gauge 5. How to choose frets For reviews and photos of my guitars, please visit my website: http://www.dmometalguitar.com/

Also, a replaced aged bone nut is installed on the guitar, but the original nut is included. Everything else is original and untouched. The pickups and 3 way switch, red disc capacitor with its yellow sleeve and pots are all original with no repairs, rewinds, new leads or touched up solder joints - original! The pickups measure as follows: Neck 6.01k, Middle 5.57k, Bridge 6.15k. The neck joint dates "2 NOV 63B." The original headstock logo is completely intact as well.

Rules of Tone - Frets
The first thing you notice when you pick up a guitar is how it feels in your hands. The guitar neck is paramount to that moment, and the feel and function of the frets plays a major role in this. If you boil it down, we're basically talking about fret material and shape. If the material is too soft, metal flakes will fall off of the guitar as it's played. If it's too hard, the frets contour to the fretboard. We use the hardest, functional material we can to avoid unnecessary re-frets. We also superglue the frets in their slots to avoid fret movement and to avoid introducing water back into the neck. As far as shape goes, a fret needs to be level and perfectly radiused to maintain the integrity and comfort of the neck, prevent string buzz, and give the instrument the ability to have low action. Frets also contribute to an instrument's overall tone. Obviously, they create the scalable notes of the guitar, but it is also important to note that when a string is engaged against a fret, the fret is carrying the string's vibration into the wood. So, they can either add to or take away from a guitar's natural resonance and musicality. We use frets with a lot of nickel, which rings well. And between the fret radius, the superglue, and the tines of the fret, they fit so well in the fret slots that the sound transfer is unhindered. In the end, the point is that every piece of the puzzle is important, including frets. For the complete Rules of Tone series, visit: http://www.rulesoftone.com

TONE CHECK: Fender Jimmy Page Mirror Telecaster Guitar Demo | NO TALKING
We've done demonstrations on a lot of guitars for our Tone Check series. However, none of them have bowled us over like Fender's new American made Jimmy Page Mirror Telecaster. This is one of the best sounding and playing Telecasters that we've seen in sixteen years of being a guitar shop. This guitar is an absolutely amazing instrument and goes way beyond just being a guitar for Led Zeppelin fans. The pickup set in this guitar sounds positively phenomenal and Page aside, this guitar will go down as one of Fender's BEST ever. Gear Used In This Video Available At Cream City Music: Fender Jimmy Page Mirror Telecaster: http://bit.ly/CCMJimmyPageTele Fender '65 Princeton Reverb: http://bit.ly/65PrincetonRI Vertex Effects Ultraphonix Overdrive: http://bit.ly/VertexUltraphonix Jimmy Page's historic Telecaster has produced many a classic lick, with one of the most revered being the opening riff of "Good Times Bad Times", the standout opener from Led Zeppelin's first album. This iconic Tele started out with a White Blonde lacquer, then was outfitted with mirrors, and finally stripped down and hand-painted by Page himself for its final form. Now, the Jimmy Page Mirror Telecaster features all the hallmarks of the legendary guitarist's original. This version is based off of Page’s Tele when it was in its “Mirror” phase (the circular mirrors are included in the tweed case). Plus, its sound is something to behold - a pair of Fender Jimmy Page Custom ’59 Tele single-coils deliver the scorching tone that changed rock 'n' roll forever - the same licks that are peppered throughout Led Zeppelin's first album. Designed alongside Page himself, this guitar is a true treat to diehard fans and vintage enthusiasts alike, and even features a Jimmy Page signature on the headstock rear. And with a "top-loader" bridge, "Oval-C" maple neck, 7.25" radius rosewood fingerboard, and 21 vintage style frets, you’re assured a great-playing, well-constructed instrument that’s ready for the stage or studio, with playability that excites and inspires, much like the original Tele it’s designed after.

Vintage Marlin Stingray re-fret and hard-tailing
Paul bought this old Marlin on eBay and had it sent down to me. Just about everything that could go wrong did on this - providing a good lesson in how challenging it can be to make one of these old budget super strats play well. Now, don't get me wrong - you know I love a challenge and I'll fight for the underdog so this is grist to the mill. On most Marlins I've seen from this era the neck is shot; permanently bent, twisted or with a non-functioning truss rod. On this guitar, the truss rod just about worked so we decided it was worth going for it. The plan was to re-radius the board and fit a set of EVO gold jumbo frets (that Paul is quite partial to!) so I set about doing the re-fret. Alongside that I explored the bridge...and discovered that it was falling apart more every time I touched it. Ok.. the next plan was to fit a Chinese budget 'Floyd Rose' that I had in a box. This I did.. but it wouldn't go back to tune well enough, no matter what I tried so in the end, I decided that the only hope for this guitar was a hard-tail. Why go to this much trouble? Because by the time I'd done the re-fret, I could tell it was playing beautifully - AND I really liked the sound (and the quirky operation) of the Marlin pickups on this guitar. Put simply it was worth it - albeit not in economic terms, but that wasn't the priority here. I fitted a block of mahogany and resined it into the tremolo cavity to provide the new hard tail short Tele bridge with a solid platform. I sprayed and sanded out the repair areas to a 'workable' finish. By no means perfect but adequate given the focus was primarily in playability and tone. If you want to do the same precision fret-levelled set ups that I do in my videos - using everyday tools that cost next to nothing – you might like my '5 Steps to Guitar Set Up Heaven' eBook.

Reloved AristoCat Columbus SG re-fret & refurbishment Part1
** Warning: long unedited video ahead. Not for entertainment purposes. Side effects include buying a Maine Coon cat when you didn't intend to... ** This video shows the start of my refurbishment of a knackered old Columbus SG copy. The guitar is nice looking in that '70s kind of way' but fitted with worn out frets and pretend 'humbuckers'. And ropey old tuners...and worn out electrics. But apart from that, it's fine :-) It has some definite mojo so I thought it was worth re-fretting. That went well and despite there being no wiggle-room with the unresponsive truss rod (how common is that?) it played pretty well once the frets had been done. So far I've upgraded the tuners to Wilkinson vintage style tuners, re-radiused and re-fretted the neck, drilled out the 5 sheared off screws (4 neck screws and 1 strap button screw) which must have been loctited in. I've also cleaned up the hardware and shielded the cavities because it's fun and looks nice. Next stop along the journey will be to install some good-looking pickups. My eye was caught the other day by some humbucker-sized Warman P90s...they look the business and would make this a bit out of the ordinary. After that, I'll be re-wiring it with decent quality pots, switch and wiring and it will be ready to rock.

Vintage (JHS) V6 re-fret and set up
This video shows the re-fret and set up of Ed's Vintage (JHS) V6 Strat. It was another interesting one for me in that the guitar technically didn't need a re-fret but the customer wanted one; and we decided to go with jumbo frets to give a different playing experience. The video kicks off with a bit of a whiteboard session looking at the different approaches to re-fretting depending on whether the neck is bound, has filled slot ends or the fret metal comes right to the edge. What at first looked like it was going to be a very straight-forward re-fret got interesting once I'd got the neck off. The neck pocket was a mess - it looked like someone had gone berserk with a chisel in there with the result that the guitar already had a 1mm shim lifting up just one side of the neck to make it level. I needed to raise the fingerboard up to the strings so had to recreate this 1mm 'straightening' shim and then ADD to it to lift both sides up the extra distance. I did this with two pieces of copper which I fitted in an 'L' shape with holes drilled in it for the neck screws to go through and hold it in place at the same time. This strategy was successful - and the re-shim allowed me to raise up the bridge saddles to 'disappear' the grub screws sticking into Ed's hands, allowing him to palm-mute in comfort for once. I re-fretted with jumbo wire and refitted the shimmed neck to set the action, cut a new nut and then perform a precision fret-levelling. Once I had completed that and re-strung & intonated the guitar I then turned to setting the tremolo to a fixed range of 'float'. To do this I referred to Galeazzo Frudua's excellent 'Post-it note' system which I've used a number of times before. While his method works beautifully to set a floating 6-screw trem with a set range of upward pitch bend it does so without you needing to understand what exactly is going on. If it has a 'weakness' it's that you follow the steps, get the result but - if you're like me - go away without understanding what you've done each time. I don't like that feeling, so decided this time to talk through the process AS I applied it to try to help me (and possibly you) make sense of what was actually happening and why. I stress that it's not meant to be critical of GF's method - far from it. My aim was to acknowledge his cool method and go a bit further to try to make sense of how it works.

Vintage Marlin Sidewinder re-fret, upgrades and setup
** Warning - long unedited video ahead. Not intended for entertainment so ensure you know where the 'back' button on your browser is ** In this video I'm turning a tired, worn-out but beautiful old vintage Marlin Strat into a fully-refretted, re-kitted instrument ready for another 30 years of playing. I call these guitars my 'AristoCats' because they're a bit more 'no-expense-spared' than my usual Reloved Guitars where the focus is more on working with what we've got and focusing mainly on the neck and frets. My 'AristoCats' are lovely retro-looking used guitars that deserve not just a great fret-levelling and set up but a full re-fret, a fingerboard re-radius, all new hardware, new wiring and electrics and shielding and so on. This video shows most of the key stages (although I loaded up and wired the scratchplate with its CTS pots, Japanese Squier vintage 3-position switch and Iron Gear hot Texas Loco pickups off camera). The end result is a lovely, vintage, heavy strat with a fabulous hot tone that's ready to go for the next quarter of a century and beyond.

I'll be using some of this EN8 steel to make both the cutter and the knurl. 02:43 After finding the edge of the work, I positioned this end mill, the correct distance past the centerline, and then set about milling the gaps between the teeth. For this part of the job I'm using the simple indexing plate of the dividing head, thats just behind the chuck. 03:32 For the cutter to work correctly, the back side of each tooth needs to be relieved, so I'll be removing this little corner of metal here on each tooth, and shaping it to blend with the back surface. 04:20 But I thought it might be worth showing what happens to the steel if nothing is done to protect it while its heated, so I've wrapped the working end of the cutter as usual, but I've left the chucking end uncoated, and exposed to the torch flame. With nothing to stop the oxidation, the unprotected end has formed a thick black scale, while the protected end is mostly free from scale, and looking quite bright. 05:39 Now you'll have noticed that the knurl teeth are cut on an angle to the body of the knurl, which means that the knurl blanks need to somehow be securely presented at an angle to the cutter. I could have simply cut them while they were still attached to the parent stock, but I figured since I was making a few of them, a dedicated holder would be bit more efficient, and I can keep it for when I make more in the future. So I made this arbor to hold them on the mill. 07:47 Back onto the mill, the work was again secured in the dividing head, and then tilted to an angle of 30 degrees. I took some time to cutter was carefully positioned against the work, to make sure it was centered on the blank, and then the teeth were cut into the knurl. 08:19 For this particular knurl I indexed for 40 teeth, which was simply one turn of the handwheel on the dividing head, for each cut. 08:56 With that first one complete, I used a few different angles, as well as index counts, to make the full set of 5 knurls, which will give me a good range of different rope knurl patterns. Each of those knurls was quench hardened and then tempered. 09:41 Bump style knurling tools generate an enormous side force on the work, so tailstock support definitely helps. And even with this support, the work still deflects quite a lot as the pattern is formed. 10:24 Now I didn't make any effort to calculate the correct diameter to avoid double tracking, in fact I was surprised to find that it wasn't really necessary.

Stop Fret Buzz - How far to turn your truss rod & the direction to turn it
Got annoying fret buzz? This video shows you how to eliminate it by a simple truss rod adjustment. It also shows you which direction you should turn your truss rod and how much you should turn it. Three Keys To a Healthy Guitar You probably already knew that adjusting your truss rod is only one of 3 big parts to completing a full guitar setup. To have a healthy guitar – a guitar that sounds great, feels great, and plays great – every time you play. After you adjust the truss rod, you’ll still need to properly change your guitar strings, check and adjust the intonation, the bridge, and the string height. Only then will you have performed a complete guitar setup. Most of the time, there will be a guitar shop near you who offers to do this for you – sometimes they will even scare you into thinking if you attempt to do it yourself you’ll break your guitar, or that to “properly” make the adjustments you need special and expensive guitar tools. But the reality is – what they are doing to your guitar can easily be done by you, with tools you already own, in your home. And it will save you hundreds of dollars per year if you know how to do it yourself. I discovered this myself when I was a teenager – I took my guitars to the shop and they were trying to charge me $400 to have my guitars adjusted. I didn’t have that kind of money when I was younger, and I didn’t have any other option than to figure out how to do it myself. I did what any other hard headed teen would do – I told the guitar shop I’d figure it out myself even if I broke my guitar in the process and I went mission to figure out how to setup my own guitars. After hours of reading books, scouring the internet forums, and talking with other guitarist – I found that it was actually really simple to do myself. In fact, it’s so easy to setup your own guitar most people make it difficult by over thinking it, which is why they have trouble figuring out the process. Over the past 15 year I've perfected my process, and now I can setup my own guitars in about 5 minutes. I finally realized that other people too want to learn how to setup their guitars themselves, but don’t have the time research it the way that I did when I was younger… So I came up with this solution – The Complete Guide To In Home Guitar Setup – with it you won’t have to pay a guitar shop to do simple adjustments for you ever again and you’re guitar will sound and play like new every time you use this process. You might have thought a course like this would be a costly because of the amount of savings it will bring you, and it used to be... I really believe these are things every guitar player should know, so I refunded everyone who purchased the course. Just go to the link below to get your free copy. Go here to get access to The Complete Guide To In Home Guitar Setup https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gdevq5Q35Hs&list=PLrSYW7_mqXddxQHNljZAY7uK-FAi37uaI ******************************************************************** *Update* There seems to have been some confusion on which direction to turn the truss rod on your guitar. While 90% of guitars function this way they don't all.. The point of this video is to just make it crystal clear which way to turn the truss rod in under most circumstances. Some have commented that this video is incorrect and you should turn the truss rod the other direction. However it's a matter of perspective. The video is only correct if you are looking at the guitar belly to belly - from the body of the guitar to the nut of the guitar. The truss rod should be turned the opposite direction if you are looking at the guitar from the nut to the body. Please take a look at these images from Sweetwater Sound and Taylor Guitars for further clarification. https://www.sweetwater.com/sweetcare/media/2017/02/Adjusting-Truss-Rod.jpg https://www.taylorguitars.com/support/maintenance/truss-rod-adjustments Please feel free to comment or reach out to me directly if you have any further questions - Dave

Review Demo - Fender American Professional Stratocaster
Read the review: http://bit.ly/FenderAmericanProStrat Strat traditions aren’t merely deep—they’re also wide. It wasn’t long after the instrument’s 1954 debut before players started tinkering with Leo’s original recipe, and the model’s evolution in the decades since has often been dramatic. These days, the Stratocaster line is like a family tree that can be charted on a vintage/modern graph, with near-exact vintage replicas such as the Fender American Vintage line at one end of the spectrum and humbucker-equipped hotrods at the other. If a historically accurate American Vintage Strat rated a 9.5 on this imaginary spectrum, the new American Professional Strat would get about a 7.5. At $1,399, the Professional’s price is about average for a U.S.-made Fender Strat—costlier than the American Standard (which the Professional replaces) and American Special instruments, but not as expensive as high-end American Elite and American Vintage models. The Professional certainly feels like an old-school Strat. If you’re a veteran Strat player, chances are someone could hand you a Professional for the first time just as you stepped onstage, and you could play all night with barely a second thought, except perhaps to admire the quality and consistency of the guitar’s workmanship. This build is excellent. The narrow/tall frets are perfectly installed, with smoothly rounded ends and a fast, sleek feel. The neck employs Fender’s “deep C” profile, which feels svelte where the neck edges meet the fretboard, but with substantial mass filling your palm. The modern “sonic gray” finish has a subtle blue-green tint and a chic industrial look. The gloss finish polyurethane is mirror-perfect. The rear of the neck wears a thin matte finish.

How to Refret a Guitar - Part 6 - Cutting & Filing Fret Ends - Stainless Steel Frets installation
How to Refret a Guitar - Part 6 - Cutting and Filing Fret Ends - In the pursuit of the ultimate best guitar tone & performance that any particular guitar can achieve, Bob Gjika is providing this DIY Luthier Tools & Tips Tutorial. This is Part 6, of 12 in the tutorial, which is cutting and filing the fret ends (that were installed in Part 5) and in it he discusses his personal philosophy on guitar tone, as it relates to the frets and refretting - and demonstrates how he achieves the desired outcome. This is a simple, basic refret on a Stratocaster that is of not a vintage or otherwise particularly valuable guitar, other than it is a working tool for a touring musician. Every guitar is different and will require a slightly different approach, based on many variables, including the damage that may have happened from less skilled luthiers having worked on it in the past - Trade secrets are being revealed here, and if you are interested in more of this kind of material in the future, you can subscribe to the channel and get notifications when new videos are posted. Feel free to comment and ask questions in the comments section. Bob Gjika personally prefers Stainless Steel Frets vs Nickel Silver Frets, but it's a lot more work, and not everyone wants them.

This Squier guitar's tone is clear and bright with terrific sustain even in crunch mode! Custom-staggered pole pieces provide improved string-to-string balance. Classic Vibe! Back in 1982, the very first Squier by Fender guitars and basses came ringing out of Asia. Known for their excellent vintage-quality look, feel, sound and construction, those early Squier instruments and their Fender branded counterparts are now highly sought-after collector's items revered by guitar enthusiasts as models of "getting it right" while aiming at value-conscious players. The Squier Classic Vibe Series reflects that simultaneous commitment to excellence, value and vibe. Mirroring classic Fender designs, the Classic Vibe offering is not intended to be era or vintage correct-but rather imparting the vibe of a classic Fender design. Each has a distinctive feature set combinations- adding up to one classic looking instrument. Great sound, vintage looks, unbeatable value-Classic Vibe!

Refretting a Gibson Les Paul Custom
West Music Coralville's Bruce Vanderschel tackles a refret on a vintage 1978 Gibson Les Paul Custom. The guitar had previously been refretted with stainless steel frets many years ago, and the luthier unfortunately cut through the binding during the process--along with using epoxy to secure the frets. Bruce walks us through the refret process from start to finish, including removing the old fretwire, prepping the fretboard, patching the chipping (which was more than normal, due to the way the frets were inlaid in the original refretting process), sanding, and finally installing, shaping and dressing the frets. Bruce has almost four decades of experience in repair at West Music Coralville, and is a go-to guy for many players in the midwest.

Cool Guitar of the Week-60's Teisco Audition needed frets and all
Well, this guitar came in needing the fretboard to be reglued since it separated from the neck at the nut. It needed all new frets, and the fretboard planed straight. The pickups needed potting because they were microphonic. The original tuners were gnarly and needed replacing, so I replaced them with a set of Kluson style tuners that work really well. The bridge needed reshaping to match the fretboard radius. The jack needed replacing and all the controls cleaned. The pickups are wired in series, which is very cool. I installed new strap buttons as well. Cleaned it up thoroughly, and set it up with 10's for 1/16" action! This thing plays sweet, sounds cool, and looks funky!! Definitely one of my favorite projects in a while!! For more info about lutherie services at D Guitars Miami LLC, please call 305-896-1811. Thanks for watching. Enjoy.
