Testimonials

"I’m about 10 tops into a stack of 40 cedar tops I got from you, and whenever I want to start a new guitar, I just walk over and pick a top off the stack, and start building.
They are all that great! I don’t have to dink around with the pattern, or select the “best" one: I just start building. I love that!  I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your high standards, and what a pleasure it is to do business with you!"

Buzz-Off® Fret Leveling Kit

FRETTINGBuzzOffFretLevelingKitFLK700

 

The fret leveling kit, designed by John S. Bogdanovich, is composed of a Pearwood sanding block shaped to fit frets, both a 3" and a 2" straight solid steel pin and steel wool. The pins are used to check flatness of the frets relative to one another. The 2" pin is for the upper frets where they are closer together. Place the pin across three frets and try to rock it back and forth. A clicking sound will reveal a high fret. Mask off the fingerboard with tape and lightly sand down the fret using the Pearwood sanding block. Begin with medium grit sandpaper and work toward finers grits as desired. Recheck for flatness with the pin and repeat if necessary. When flat, polish with the steel wood included. Repeat up the fingerboard.
