Well, this is going to be it. I'm commited. It's gonna be a cesspool of a variety of projects & meltdowns splayed all over your computer screen for you to scoff & laugh at. Here's what I was up to yesterday. Everyone knows about these AXL shells from ubuyguitars.com. Awesome projects for low monies & like I said if you wanted to practice installing frets this is your chance. You might be rewarded with a cool guitar. I purposefully did the more difficult one first, the double bound AXL Bel Air. It's more difficult because the bound neck requires a lot more cutting of the tang for your overhang. hmmm... great metaphor-Tang for your overhang. Sounds like something you might call your girlfriend/wife. One fret side cut & prepped. About to do the other. No I wasn't using those pliers to cut. Those were to put a little more bend in the fret. I should have taken a pic of the modded everyday cutters I was using (I got to use a friends shop/bench/tools/wisdom/guidance). You don't need $1000's of Stew Mac tools. Frets glued (Elmer's glue FTW) tapped & clamped. I've seen people use CA but because we weren't fret pressing per se. The Elmer's gives a longer drying time & acts as a lube when tapping. Cleans up with a damp rag. I checked up & down the neck with a small straight edge for high frets previous to the clamping. That's the time to knock it down. See the rods under the block? Applying pressure the length of the neck on the edge of the fretboard/frets. This is my fret press. This whole effort took a couple hours total. I'll add to those that got these projects to organize your frets from shortest to longest to start. I eyeballed it kind of rushing. Also take an Xacto knife to your fret slots & clean them out really well. These seem to be cut pretty deep.
