Fret Dressing Class


Many have asked for more advanced classes, so we are pleased to now offer private Skype or FaceTime sessions with respect to frets.


It's important to keep your frets smooth and round so that your guitar plays and sounds its best. Normal play slowly wears away the fret material and creates flat spots and divots. Routine inspection of your frets should be done while performing your set-ups and dressings should be done when problems exist. After you are comfortable with your guitar set-up procedures, fret dressings should be the next step in your quest for personally taking care of all aspects of guitar repair techniques. This class will teach you about your first line of defense against fret wear and fret deterioration and offer you the procedures and methods of executing a proper fret dressing course of action.

During the class we will cover:

Tonal changes

Tools needed

Description of tool use

Instrument/finish protection

Fret dressing procedures

Finger board straightening

Fret/Fingerboard radius

Fret leveling




High fret inspection

Final examination/set-up

Take your guitar repair knowledge to the next level and learn the proper procedures of finely dressing your frets. This private class will answer your fret dressing questions and help you gain confidence in starting your quest for properly assessing and working on your frets.

This private class is scheduled by appointment and usually lasts approximately 3 hours. If you have more than one guitar, this class will pay for itself over and over again.
