Indispensable

By Jonathan Wilson from Sylmar, Ca.
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, August 11, 2010


I do the most difficult fretting ever. Imagine deep radius like cello; I build bowed guitars. This makes average guitar fretting seem like a walk in the park. Without this device, reliably doing this type of work is a crap shoot whereby new ways of cussing and tool throwing are invented. CA glue and careful pre-bending on these deep radius necks are not enough to keep re-coil from happening. The Fret Crimper is required equipment here. I do not know how I survived for so many years without it.
