This is a great sounding guitar and one of my toughest refrets. It is very warm but can get very crunchy when you dig in on it. The owner bought this guitar new and has played out the frets that came on it so it was time to breathe a little life back into the fret board and put in some new stainless steel frets. Some Rosewood is very brittle just because of its nature and this was one of those. It had massive chip out during the fret removal but with a lot of patience it was refilled with Rosewood dust and came out beautiful.
