Strat Ultra

Time for a full fret replacement job, 22 very old frets off, 22 new frets on!

 

A nice old Strat that needs a little TLC.

Wow, look at the grunge under these frets!

I heat the frets up first which makes them come out easier and softens any glue that may have been used previously.

Looking good! That is the original Wilkinson roller nut there, still working nicely, most of these old nuts are broken or have been replaced by now.
