Back from paint - ready for the final fretwork
I did the fretwork yesterday and that was going to be it for the updates, but... I had a little change of plan and I think I might be making something else for it... so much for this being the last update lol!
While I realize my pics aren't going to show everything, cut me a break as fretwork is tedious and sometimes I just forgot to take the damn pics - lol!

Here's the fretboard as it looked when arrived from Mark. A very nice line with a little bit of the clear going over the binding for me to clean up in this stage.
Just a quick shot to show you how I check to make sure the neck was straight (I was checking against the board, not the frets).
After getting everything to a nice even leveling, I shaped the frets with this tool from Stew-mac that makes this step soooo easy! Frets are still looking rough...
Again, please keep in mind this is not a tutorial as I skipped a few steps in the pics like doing the fallaway for the upper frets, etc....
Buy a fret book to learn all about it!!
