How to bind a fretboard, Gibson-style - StewMac

Gibson started shaping bindings at the fret ends nearly 100 years ago. After fretting the board, they slapped on the binding then scraped the heck out of it between the frets. The "nibs" remaining at each fret end give a dressy look to the more expensive Gibsons.

Having an odd issue, strings feel like they are grinding ...

It feels like the string is grinding on the frets. It even makes a scratchy sound when I apply vibrato. I feel resistance there. I put brand new strings on and it did it again immediately. I bought some fret erasers and tried buffing the higher frets, even though the guitar is still pretty new, but that hasn't helped.

excessive fret buzz after new strings - Gibson USA ...

The guitar still had the factory strings on it and the guitar played like a dream and had no buzz at all. When I changed the strings I was real careful to put the correct gauge back on it and change each string one at a time. When I got it tuned and strummed a few chords I noticed that my G, D, A, and low E all had buzz up and down the fret board.

How Much Fret Wear Do You See? - Telecaster Guitar Forum

Some thick poly on the board makes low small frets even lower though as the pooled thick finish might make a .040 fret effectively only .030 above the poly. The old Gibson fretless wonder necks often showed no fret wear for decades, possibly because the board stopped us from pressing the strings down far enough to really grind down the fret wire.

Nickel strings, and that 'fret grind' ?!? | The Gear Page

Hi all, I just switched to using SOB pure nickel strings a few months back, and like the warmth of their tone, however I am a little disconcerted when doing fast vibratos with them, as after a second or so of wobbling the string, I can FEEL metal grit grinding on the frets.

Fretboard removal question | My Les Paul Forum

182. Aug 19, 2009. #3. Use a thin bakers spatula. I have several, some with offsets and some straight. I grind the front edge of the spatula to be thinner but not too sharp. The spatula will heat up while it is in between the neck and the fingerboard allowing it to move through the glue joint easier.

Gibson puts the frets in the fretboard before they put the fretboard on the guitar. They start at one end of the board and work to the other end.

Fret Grinding Question | The Gear Page

By "fret bars", do you mean that your guitar has a "zero fret" instead of a nut? If you have troulbe making a barre chord, and rounder (vintage) radius will help - maybe a 7.25" like an old Strat or Tele. Buzzing comes from several things: 1) Strings are too low to the frets. 2) The frets are not level to start with. 3) Too much relief in the neck.

Lightly fret a string at the twelfth fret, if the note is off pitch use a screw driver to adjust the saddle (towards the nut if 12th is flat, towards the bridge if sharp)... access shouldn't be an issue on a standard bridge.

What causes Fret Buzz? ... and How to Fix it!

The guitar string is being fretted at the first fret (by an invisible finger). Uh oh. Fret #2 is taller than Fret #1, which results in there not being enough space between the top of Fret #2 and the bottom of the guitar string. That means the guitar string will rattle/buzz against Fret #2 every time the guitar is fretted and played at Fret #1.
