10 Awesome Tools To Supercharge Your Guitar Fret Installation

The Fret Tools I use And Recommend

Welcome to This edition of the Art Of Lutherie Podcast! In this episode, I show you my 10 favorite tools for fret installation in a video clip taken from my online guitar making course Fretwork Mastery Part 1. In this podcast I also share some of my personal experiences, stories, and encouragement about overcoming the stumbling blocks that tried to hold me back from building my first guitar and from stepping out to improve the guitars I was already building. I hope you’ll find this podcast useful, encouraging, and inspiring to help you move forward and overcome those negative voices in your life that are trying to hold you back. All of us here at The Art Of Lutherie and the Luthier’s EDGE are cheering you on, so go for it, you can do it!
