Default Fretting

I just got a ton of pics from the Digital Imagery Dept. at Tahoe Guitars. Several posts follow.

Larry installs the frets.

A roll of raw fretwire. I prefer the gold EVO fretwire for its durability. FWIW, My OM armed with this fretwire shows no string line wear in the frets after 5 years of regular play. Good stuff!

This tool snips the fret tang off the end of the frets.

*snip* No tang on the end...

Martin 00-18G; Eastman 805; Waterloo WL-S; Furch Green OM-SR; Tahoe Guitar Co.: OM (Adi/Hog); 000-12 (Carp/FG Hog); 000-12 (Lutz/Maple); 00-12 (Carp/Sinker Hog); 00-14 (Adi/Ovangkol)

A brown truck eased into my space
My wife screamed somewhere
I struck a deal with the man at the Guitar-for-bills
I am the GASsing stranger
A fool in love, within compulsion mills
