Firstly,I'm really about unsure about the exact model of this one. Couldn't find the catalog scans on net.It's HSS,2 knobs,Floyd Rose II etc,so forgive me if the title is not right.
As mentioned in a couple entry ago,this is another academic attempt refretting a maple.Well not much to say about the fretwork,its similar to a rosewood job except the final stage.Putting a finish on the fingerboard.
Before starting work,i came across a few YouTube videos showing fretting without sanding true the fingerboard.I wish the same can be done on this one but the bow/slight twist just seem inviting to be corrected.Doing fretwork without truing the fingerboard is something that I failed to understand.The factory trued every neck,so should we.In my opinion this has to be done to avoid leveling the frets more than needed.My aim is to give this a proper but sloppy work.Hehe..However,I did assure my client to not worry about my fretwork,just don't look at fingerboard when you play it..Haha..
I need to correct what I said in video that this is by right a Fender Squier made between 94-98.There's also a Japanese version during that time.Indeed my Fender knowledge were shallower than I thought.
There's one interesting thing I found when opening the pickguard. Cigarette foil were used for shielding,I believe this was done by another tech.Maybe I should keep my cigarette foil instead of throwing them away.Its tempting but I'm gonna pass unless the need arises. Hehe.
Nothing much to write in this post as the key
