Here is a testimonial for our fretting guide from professional luthier Jonathan Holland in Georgia:
I recently bought some frets and the order came with your “Fretting Guide” CD.
I’ve been a professional luthier for quite awhile and feel pretty confident with my fretting skills, so I initially just set it aside. Then I thought “why not just take a look?”
I was immediately impressed with the professional presentation, and reviewed the entire CD carefully. I took away several helpful hints and ideas, thus proving that this old dog CAN be taught some new tricks. I put these ideas into practice on a re-fret that same evening and had one of the smoothest jobs ever!
Great CD, well produced. Thanks!
