Really?

I haven't, but I've read the book (as well as a few articles on the stewmac website), and it seems that you can't really ruin anything if you have the correct tools and don't file the finish/wood

I was going to tape it up anyway though, so the only risk I see is the ends not being rounded properly when I'm finished.

Or is there something I'm forgetting? It's just the sharp fret ends, not the tops of the frets or anything. They're fine as far as playability goes, but they just tend to cut my hands up!

An update to my MB-1 project i've been working on, pretty happy with it for my first ever project but have definitely had my fair share of mistakes!

Just waiting on a bridge, replacement screen and nut for the neck then its wiring time
