    Hi,

    My Junior is a cool guitar but fret job is very bad, I can feel the frets on the sides when I play.
    I want to file the frets and protect the neck.

    Thank you, here is the Jr

    simple enough job.
    remove strings run a flat mill file along the fret ends, once they are flush to the neck, knock the corners off the frets with a small flat needle file,
    then sand and buff with 600, 1000, 2000 grit sandpaper and then some 0000 steel wool.
    then oil the board with some mineral oil, restring and enjoy.
