Fretwork in my opinion is an art!! It takes time, a good eye, patience and skill.

In the sample pics below you can see how a really damaged fretboard can look and how it can be repaired to new. At Rocket Music we can do everything from checking individual frets for height differences (thus fixing buzzing), fret levelling and crowning, removing old frets that are too far gone and replacing with nice new ones. We always check the size and replace with the same (or slightly bigger if required). It also depends on what your preference is. Fretwork is a technical process that should only be done by a Guitar tech who has experience.

Remember fret condition is an important part of a guitar. It can be the difference from an average / poor guitar to being the most comfortable with great playability and tone.
