    Yes, well done Captain, you'll just have to play here a nice serenade with your refretted guitar, and it will be forgiven !

    Hello Christophe, Doug I had a feeling you would be chiming in on this one. Yes I have decided to level my Fender acoustic fret board as some of the frets are in need of
    crowning so I have been buying lathier tools to do the job wish me good luck...I will be starting on a old tree trunk from yesteryear to get some practice first .

    Hi Captain,
    I'm sure you will success, just take care of a few things,
    - don't forget that with string tension removed, the neck is "normally' back bowed
    - don't try to absolutely flatten it with truss rod tension
    - Do not force, if you feel some difficulty loosening the truss rod nut.
    - Do that only if you know how to set up the truss rod tensioned
    - You can however, if you don't want to play with the truss rod setup, check for uneven frets , using a 'rocking tool' (look at stew Mac, but do it yourself)
    - When crowning, paint the top with a sharpy and be sure you always leave a thin line on top when filing
    - take care that your file is smooth or protected on the side, not to hurt the rosewood.

    about leveling, have a look at this site, no special tools used, and good method
    Home

    Good luck, but I'm confident !
