We received this 20 years old Yamaha Guitar from our customer Paul,
This guitar is a wedding anniversary gift from his wife and means alot to him.
As you can see the frets are low and the fingerboard is extremely dry.
We suggest Paul to go for a full refret and our refret will consist a special treatment to solve the fingerboard condition.
Yup. look at the dirt and dull colour of the fingerboard.
All fret end are rounded off uniformly to ensure the fret end won't cut our fingers.
1st fret to 17th frets are machine pressed in, 17th onwards are hammered in the old school way.
More pictures. Stewmac Medium/Highest frets are used in this refret.
We will try to minimize re-leveling of frets as much as possible as there is no point to level down the frets even before playing.
In this refret, we didnt re-level the frets at all! This is what we always aim to get.
We guarantee there is no buzzing, dead notes, choke at bend even at low action.
Notice that there is a fret just after the nut? That is known as "Zero Fret"
All done and ready to rock!

I am Paul, owner of this 1970 Yamaha SA50. Surprised to find her posted here. I love this axe and Mike of SV Guitars done a great job. My Wife then bought this guitar to keep me away from my pals. Actually, my Kids kept me busy for more than 20 yrs with no time to jam with my pals. Now that they have grown up and I am reaching retirement, got to practice my scales so that I can join my pals who are now grandpas. You know what folks, I love this Yam more than the Gibson Supreme I bought recently. I must say, every cent spent on this old beauty is worth it!!!. It's a real pleasure to hold her.............and play smoothly. Thanks Mike.. Salut!!
