These old, worn out frets are coming out. Sideways!

Frets are out! No damage to the fretboard. Very lightly sanded to knock down the high spots, I am leaving the fingernail divots alone.

Nice birdseye maple neck. Weird grey crap in the nut slot.

This neck was finished in March of 1965. The 2 designates a Strat neck, not the date. You can see from this picture how thin the rosewood fretboard is. In addition, this is an example of a neck that was fretted sideways, the Fender way until 1983.

1965 Pre-CBS Stratocaster in for a refret. Not the original tremolo.
