Bowes 7 String Stainless Steel Refret

We don’t post refret pictorials unless there is something special or unusual about the procedure or the guitar.  Recently we received a Bowes 7 string and the owner wanted a refret with 6100 stainless steel fret wire. A very good choice for this guitar. This guitar is light weight well balanced and the joinery work was very good. If you are interested in a 7 string I highly recommend Bowes. This one was nice. As a builder myself I am very keen to see what other builders do and I was impressed. Here are some pictures of the process. It was a joy working on this guitar and in the end the customer was very satisfied and that is really what it is all about. When you do a job and your employer or in this case the owner appreciates the work then you feel as though you have accomplished something and that in turn makes you strive to do even better. Whether we work for someone else or ourselves in the end we all report to our customers.
