I was chatting with a buddy of mine about guitar set ups recently. I'd certainly consider this guy more advanced than me when it comes to the art of guitar setups and he mentioned a trick that he does when levelling frets. My standard course of action is to level across the whole neck. However he came up with this prospect of creating an angle on the level as you do the higher registers (e.g. fret 14 upwards). That is you level of frets 1-13 as normal. Then when doing the rest of the neck, you add a couple of layers of tape between the levelling file and the top of fret 13, something for the file to glide over. That way you create a really shallow angle between the file and the neck and level that way. The result is frets 1-13 are flat as you expect, but as you progress upwards from 14, the fret height will fall away naturally. He reckons this is a little secret he's been using for years to stop things like choking off on the higher registers and creating a nice place to solo for us metal players. So basically, anyone ever heard of this? Anyone do this? Anyone feel like expanding on the technique? It sounds neat for sure and tempted to try it on one of my subjects in need of a fret dress. Just wondered about feedback?
