    I know you are joking. But just to clarify for anyone who may not understand. Low action refers to string height from frets...not to the board. :lol:

    Maybe the customer requested multiple fret heights for um, ergonomics?

    I am usually not the type of person to pile on but this is simply absurd. The fact that he is ok with this poor craftsmanship and that people actually pay him(I think) completely blows my mind.

    LAWD ALMIGHTY!!! What did those frets ever do to that guy?!?! He's gone and chopped off their heads.

    I did 3 level and recrown jobs this weekend with nothing more than a long sanding block and a triangle file with the corners ground down, and they turned out great. This guy's got the Cadillac of diamond crowning files and has no fkn clue what he's doing.

    MAKE IT STAHP!!!

    That's an incredible exercise in tackiness. I also fail to see the point of pinching the Oni e-scale idea. This is just a variation of fanned frets that looks like it would hurt one's wrist.

    Frets 13-14 and 19 upwards made me cringe. Owwww...my brain hurts. And looking at that piss-poor pickup route made it hurt even worse.

    What in the name of all things is this abomination.........

    I can't even.

    Take some Sharpie or acrylic paint to this abomination and it would fit in with all the other Etherials.

    Jesus christ, that last string have to be bigger than the fretboard on 6 string guitars. Where do you even find strings as big as that?
