    Why get it from Germany? Most UK techs have a UK supplier and a UK backup supplier.

    My mistake, I thought they were in the UK.

    They do sometimes use a UK website address, which I suppose is confusing.

    So which one is your number one?....The CAR 1986?.......
    I searched and searched for a custom color 1986 reissue but could not find one under 3k USD's....

    I hope your refret works out....garyhoos1

    Indeed. That was a hard decision!

    And I agree.

    If you've never tried fret wire directly from the ol' Portuguese fret wire mines, you're missing out.

    I wouldn't even touch a guitar without Portuguese fret wire and Brazilian rosewood.

    You may have asked for a fretwire that was not normally stocked at that luither.

    We have spools of common Stainless and Nickel sizes, but if someone wanted EVO Gold in jumbo, we'd probably have to special order it for them.

    Very glad you got what you hoped for! Looks great. The neck makes up most of a special guitar. You should be golden.

    Why does this make me think of Ken Dodd and the diddy men who laboured so hard in the jam buttie mines.

    Congrats Gary, glad it all worked out.
    That was a pretty dramatic mini-series, luckily it had a happy ending

    My guitar was playing poorly a few years ago. I really worried about it, and spent a lot of money. It really didn't improve anything.

    This year, I started feeling the same way then stopped myself, noting that it got me nowhere to fret before... Why refret?
