Congrats on the clean looking axe. Take it to a good tech, they can fix the crowning issue.
This is beautiful. Also, if you ever want to sell your rga121, I'm they guy to get a hold.
I own two. And I want more lol
Anyway, you black machine copy is seriously nice. Good score.
Looks like old-school hand crowning to me. Take a file and file with a kind of rolling motion and you get a fret profile that looks like the top of a school bus. There's a crown, that crown just happens to have a huge radius.
I feel like it's ever so slightly harder to tap on flatter frets and legato sounds less consistent if part of your board is crowned better than another. Then again maybe my technique just blows.
WoW Looks AMAZING! HNGD and great clip!
Looks really good! HNGD!
If the frets don't ruin your playing, you can leave them, or file them like others have suggested. Tape off the fretboard so you don't scratch it!
yeah they havent been an issue at all lol, thanks for letting me know though guys
HNGD, good lookin thang!
If you like the way it feels don't worry about crowning them. I have a Siggery too and it intonates, feels, bends perfectly... Have you guys played a vintage fret less wonder Gibson custom ? Even the new customs are fretted the same way smooth and wonderful action can be had...
Sorry if I'm bumping this, but..
.. am I the only one that thinks it is ridiculous that you have to come up for excuses for accepting a guitar with flat frets (or close to flat)? I mean, today's standard is a fret with a round crown, as has it been the last few decades, and it shouldn't matter if flat frets used to be a thing or not, it wasn't advertised either by the seller or Siggery in the first place..
That guitar is the shit, man! Congrats. They did a great fúcking job. That top is tits!
No doubt! That thing is the doobie woobie ding dong diggle wiggle!
Yeah dude, I wish I was told of the issue, that wasnt so great of the seller even though he was a great guy I feel like i shouldve been made aware. Its honestly not a big deal, whats done is done. Maybe in the future this could potentially be an issue, but well have to wait and see. Next time I buy a guitar second hand im going to ask for every little detail.
My thanks goes out to those who have pm'd me and made me aware of the issue <333333333
Very nice man, HNGD!
6 years later if you guys were wondering...
now has a completely new fret job.
Neck was warped BAD and needed to have the fretboard removed and get leveled. Fretboard was reinstalled and new fretwork was done at that time. plays phenomenally now but the neck will never be perfect sadly
Also I swapped the Seymor Duncan’s that were in it for bareknuckle aftermaths
Nice guitar obviously, but I used to display my $200 Ibanez on my computer chair like that when I was 14 years old. At this level, gotta get a stand or wall hanger for that bad boy.
I think you might find the original post with pics on chair was in 2014, is Paul Brett the new owner of guitar? I'm confused.
