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/

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

Stainless Steel vs Nickel Frets
Tone comparison between Nickel/Silver and Stainless Steel frets. **To skip straight to the sound clips, jump to 2:49.** Both necks have identical specs *and* were cut from the exact same piece of Maple. The neck specs are: Maple shaft and fretboard, Vintage/Modern construction, Standard Thin back profile, 1-11/16" nut width, 22 frets. For the test, they are both bolted to same body, and recorded on subsequent days.

Fixing fret buzz: spot leveling and re-crowning
http://www.stewmac.com/ Dan Erlewine found a 1935 May Bell and fell in love with her. She has some fret buzz due to worn frets that are flat and wide. Dan shows how a little leveling and filing got her playing again. This old May Bell guitar has a “mother of toilet seat” pickguard and fingerboard. This model was made by Regal in 1935 and distributed by Slingerland. In the case with it was a metal raised nut to be placed over the string nut, presumably for playing Hawaiian lap-steel style.

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.

Now to form those teeth, I'm going to use an additional cutter that looks like this. 00:44 Each tooth on this cutter has a 90 degree V profile, and there are 4 teeth milled around a central axis. There's relief at the back of each tooth, and the cutting rake angle will be generated by milling past the tool centerline. 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.

Fender Custom Shop Limited 30th Anniversary Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster  •  SN: CZ536325
The Fender Custom Shop Eric Clapton Journeyman Relic Stratocaster takes the incredibly popular Eric Clapton model to a whole new level by recreating the inspiring feel of the original with an incredibly cool Journeyman Relic finish. A soft-V shaped maple neck, Vintage Noiseless pickups, blocked tremolo and Clapton's signature come give it plenty of mojo. When you combine such a stellar sound with the sort of meticulous finish work the Custom Shop is known for, you get a guitar that sounds, looks, and feels like it's been down to the cross roads and back many times. Wildwood Guitars is honored to present such a fitting tribute to a guitar legend, and we know its broken-in feel and classic sound will inspire players of all stripes.

Kim Walker 12 Fret Style C
This is about as close to a vintage 30s Martin sound that you are likely to find on any newer Mahogany guitar. It's also light and responsive, not to mention very comfortable to play. This Walker has opened up beautifully; trebles are huge but balance well with the other registers. The last owner took great care of this beauty.

Gibson 2019 J-45 Vintage  •  SN: 12738008
With the J-45 design, you essentially get the best of ALL worlds! Here, we have a large bodied guitar that has the bark and fullness of its dreadnought brethren, yet the sensitivity and all out responsiveness of a smaller bodied guitar. With a collection of strengths such as these, it's no wonder than these lovely guitars are so often referred to as, simply, "The Workhorse." The slightly shorter scale length and light build philosophy makes this the secret weapon for fingerpickers looking for a larger body--just ask Jackson Browne! The J-45 Vintage stays true to the original in every way, including the same round-shoulder dreadnought body design, an enhanced top built from Thermally Aged Adirondack red spruce, custom vintage hide glue top bracing, and back and sides constructed from genuine mahogany. Finished with Gibson's new Thin Finish plus a hand rubbed VOS process for a truly vintage-inspired look and feel.

BLUES SOLO - SUHR Classic Antique ROASTED - Surf Green
Here's a little blues improv off the cuff on my newest suhr Classic Antique ROASTED Limited edition in surf green. Not feeling the best today so go easy on the criticism .. :) This guitar is part of a limited edition run! Only 200 units worldwide! FROM SUHR: The Limited Edition Classic S Antique Roasted features a Roasted Alder body and Roasted Maple neck. We find that the roasting process increases stability and resonance, making the Classic S Antique Roasted a great choice for guitarists on the road. The substantial, yet comfy 60’s C vintage medium neck profile is paired with Indian Rosewood fingerboard for traditional look and feel. The V60LP single coils and SSV humbucker produce a wide range of authentic classic tones. Modern improvements like the SSCII hum canceling system, stainless steel frets, proprietary Suhr locking tuners, and the Gotoh 510 tremolo help this vintage-inspired instrument meet the demanding standards of today’s guitarists while retaining the feel and mojo of a guitar has been played for decades.

Fender American Performer Telecaster Humbucker - Review & Demo
In this video, Sam takes a look at the new Fender American Performer Telecaster Hum, an all-American made Telecaster with a humbucker at the neck for less that £1000! Check it out here: https://www.pmtonline.co.uk/fender-american-performer-telecaster-hum-mn-vintage-white Fender's new American Performer series has replaced the now-discontinued American Special range as their most affordable all American made guitars, manufactured in Corona California. Now if you’ve played an American Special, you’ll know how just good they are, a kind of stripped down version of the more expensive models with less fancy finishes, but still delivering that authentic sound and playability of a genuine USA fender. This guitar however, offers something that wasn’t available as part of the old American special range, and that’s a Telecaster with a humbucker pickup at the neck position. As you’d expect for a Telecaster, the American Performer features an Alder body with a bolt-on maple neck and either a maple or rosewood fingerboard, depending on which finish you go for. The neck’s got a super smooth, satin urethane finish featuring Fender’s modern C profile, and the fingerboard has the standard 9.5” radius and has been fitted with 22 jumbo frets, so anyone who’s played a modern Telecaster will instantly feel at home with this guitar. Versatile Telecaster tones come courtesy of a pair of Fender’s new Yosemite pickups, a single coil at the bridge and a double tap hum bucker in the neck position. Along with the 3 way switch and volume control, you can access single coil tones from the hum bucker without any loss of volume, by pulling out the push/pull tone pot, so you can still want to get a traditional tele neck pickup tone, and Fender’s grease bucket circuitry allows you to roll off treble frequencies with the tone pot, without adding any bass or muddying the sound. In terms of hardware, there’s 6 vintage style Fender Classic Gear 18:1 tuners up on the headstock and down at the other end of it’s 25.5” scale length, a string through body, vintage style bridge with 3 brass saddles. There’s some pretty cool colours to choose from, either 3 colour sunburst or vintage white with a maple fingerboard and either Aubergine or Satin Surf green with a rosewood fretboard, and all of these models comes supplied with a great quality Fender gig bag.

Dave Anderson doing a quick demo of the amazing, hand-built Tom Rein S Custom. Make no mistake, this is not a "parts-caster" like so many others. Tom hand selects his own wood, and build his own necks and bodies. This guitar features an Alder body, Maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard, a Callaham Trem, and Vintage Vibe hand-wired pickups. Tom asked pickup guru Pete Biltoff, "If Eric Johnson called you and wanted the most vintage sound possible, build me a set of those". And that is just what he got. This guitar has incredible sustain, definition, and bell-like tone, and is a joy to play. Check out this and all of Tom's wonderful guitars @ www.faziosmusic.com

Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilt Paul Waller 1963 Stratocaster - Korina  •  SN: R95733
Wildwoodians, we recently received four '63 Stratocasters from Master Builder Paul Waller with figured korina bodies, and their unprecedented beauty literally shut our shop down. Before we opened this morning, we took them all out of their cases and put them on stands so that we could gawk at them more easily while working, but their exquisite looks demanded our full attention. It may not have been the most productive way for us to prepare for a busy Saturday, but hey, sometimes we can't help ourselves when confronted with aesthetic perfection. Part of the reason these guitars are so exciting is the rarity of figured korina. There is a plentiful supply of korina in Africa, it's a difficult wood to build guitars out of because of its chemical composition. It's quite a moist wood, and when the water drains out of it, it often splits and you obviously can't build a guitar out of split wood (don't worry--luthiers like Paul dry and stabilize the wood before beginning the build). Furthermore, in the wild korina is quite susceptible to stains from fungus and bacteria seeking nourishment from its natural sugars. So, finding an untouched piece of korina big enough to build a guitar with is rare. Finding such a piece with beautiful figuring like the planks Paul Waller used for these Strats is rarer still. It's like he pulled a needle out of a haystack in a field with two dozen haystacks in it! Such rare, beautiful wood would make for an impressive aesthetic by itself, but these Strats also have gorgeous finishes, superb relic jobs, and AAA rosewood fretboards. Oh, and the pickguards are further evidence of Paul Waller's masterful touch--I think the staff spent a full five minutes gushing about how great they look. Of course, rare wood and sweet looks are only half the reason why these guitars brought all work at Wildwood to a grinding halt. We expect Masterbuilt Fenders to sound great, but these baller Wallers have exceeded our lofty expectations. Korina sounds heavenly with Stratocaster electronics in it! It has a warm, punchy sound that often draws comparisons to mahogany, but its midrange has a bit more chewiness and sweetness and its highs are sparklier and livelier. It's also more responsive! This makes for an overall timbre that has classic elements of Fender tone while also sounding fresh and exciting. And, speaking of exciting and new, these korina-bodied killers have Paul Waller's new Troposphere pickups in them, and they deserve to be a Custom Shop fixture! Their tone is clear yet expansive, lush, and three-dimensional. It makes for a supremely expressive playing experience, especially in conjunction with the sweet sound of korina. We are proud to showcase these '63 Strats that sprang from the bench of Paul Waller. Their rare beauty and incredible sound are sure to provide Fender fanatics with a lifetime of inspiration, and hope you are as delighted with them as we are.
