Replacement of old worn-out frets with new frets practically always leads to damaging and widening of fret mounting slots. As a rule, the tang width of modern frets is up to 0.5mm.  Mounting of a fret like this into a damaged wide slot results in a loose (diffused) sound of the musical instrument.

SINTOMS Ltd. has found a solution to this problem by offering a line of fret wire with a wider (up to 0.65mm) fret tang. 

SINTOMS repair frets are successfully used by luthiers for replacement of frets. They can also be used when some resistance of the neck’s deflection, caused by the tension of strings, is needed.

    Great problem solver

    Posted by Craig Olmstead on Nov 3, 2022

    Somehow being a mechanic by trade I am the elected luthier from my little group of friends who play and recently a friend who has inherited a couple older guitars showed up with a late 70's lawsuit p-bass copy they found in a closet. overall really clean shape, one problem, when he started playing it 3 frets fell out, Widest fret slots I have ever seen, I was about to cut veneer strips and go the whole fill the slots with veneer strips and re-slot route then I remembered these, I did the whole neck with these repair frets and it came out really sweet, Highly recommend, very affordable solution, nice wire to work with, I even bought some extra for those just in case moments.
