Mr Frets
Make sure to align perfectly before hammering in!

These look the business and I'm glad I chose this as a slightly different alternative to steel or nickel as they have a slightly rose gold colouration. No idea about hardness/longevity yet but they seem slightly easier to file than stainless steel so I guess a little bit softer. One note though about the length - obviously they come pre-cut for specific fretboard dimensions and my fretboard was probably very slightly wider at the body end than what might be considered 'standard' in this case, so I had to make absolutely sure that the fret ends fully overlapped the fretboard before tapping them in. There was *very* little overhang at each end by the time I got up to the body end (<0.5mm at each end) so just watch out for this when installing. Check twice, hammer once!

Making life easy

Easy to fit and finish, wish all frets were like this.

Something a little different

Thought I’d try something different aesthetically having recently tried stainless frets.
They arrived quickly and well packaged. Lengths are neatly cut as are the tangs.
However the tang width was nearer 1mm than .6 measured excluding the “teeth”. Trying to insert the frets into my ebony board proved impossible! This resulted in me having to open up my fret slots with a blade kerf of nearer 1mm. Unfortunately I have still ended up with a curved fretboard. Not sure I’d use them again unless someone tells me I got a bad batch.
