    Hosco Fret Crowning Luthier File Wide

    Posted by Fulton Douglas on Apr 26, 2020

    At first I tried out StewMac's diamond fret file ... took about 15 minutes for a single fret ( the frets were very worn and had to be substantially leveled )
    I ordered the Hosco file as in past decades I had used similar ( non-diamond style ) file.
    I had the entire board ( 21 fret strat ) leveled in less than 1 hour. Hardly any chattering, very quickly learned to finesse it - each brand/style is unique - VERY impressed and pleased + PLS has awesome pricing and delivery. Do shop here, I insist !

    Least expensive option for my single known fret size. Got the job done. Great service from PLT.
