This stunning Fender custom shop Stratocaster was brought in for a fret recrown to give life back into the frets!
The board is masked off before the frets are filed, re-profiling the curve back into the fret
Once the frets have been crowned, they are hand polished to remove tool marks and bring them to a smooth shine, improving the feel of the frets, especially when bending strings!
The finished result, ready to restring and return to the customer. Enjoy more photos of the guitar below!
Note all the original paperwork that has been kept with the guitar, the note about lacquer finishes is great explaining the difference of nitrocellulose lacquer!
