Our Fretwork Sets Us Apart From All The Rest
Fret Dress (Fret Level)
A Southeast Guitar Repair Fret Dress aka fret level will have your instrument playing better than the day you bought it brand new. If your guitar has some buzzing issues, you may notice some wear on the frets. Those groves or divots in the fret will no longer be an issue after we get our hands on it. We level, re-crown & polish all of the frets even, making sure the string makes contact with each fret exactly as the next. Our fret dress includes our signature "Southeast" guitar setup. Southeast Guitar Repair fretwork is impeccable.
If your frets no longer have enough meat to dress (or level down), a re-frett is what you need. Our re-frets include a hand carved bone nut & finished up with our signature Southeast Guitar Repair professional setup. After a Southeast Guitar Repair re-fret, your guitar is good for another 100,000 miles! A properly done re-fret will not hurt the value of your guitar at all. As we all know, a guitar isn't worth nearly enough if you can't play it. You may find shops with lower re-fret prices. We do not need to lower our prices to compete with them. People bring us their guitars to refret, because we do it better than anyone in the business. We do not cut any corners. Your guitar will be better than it was the day you bought it. We guarantee all of our work. Careful not to pay the other guys first & have to repay us again. We see it more times than we would like to. Spend 30 minutes online, reading forums, reading reviews about the actual guy, (not the shop) that will be doing the work for you. A real luthier with years of re-fret experience should have personal reviews not just on yelp & google, but real life experiences in the forums. Anyone can get their buddy to write a yelp review for them, but forum members that post frequently on real issues are the "real" tried & true customers that have actually had the job done. You are spending a big chunk of change on your re-fret. We see the hack jobs. It costs so much more to correct their "re-fret". A re-fret should take anywhere from 2 weeks up to 4 even 6 during busy seasons if we are doing finish work. And sometimes longer if the weather is not in our favor. If a shop tells you they can do it fast, question that!
