Fret Level/Dress/Re-Crown with locking tremolos: $120

Fret level/dress/re-crowns are needed when there are worn or not level frets, and is usually a great alternative to a full re-fret of the instrument. This process ensures the best playability and intonation of your instrument. A full setup is included with all fret work  

Re-Frets: When your frets are worn beyond the ability to fret level, or if you want to change the fret size of your instrument. Re-frets include a fingerboard level for non-finished fingerboards, as well as a full setup. If you are changing up in fret size, you may want to change the nut as well.
