    When I play the 13th position on the low E (the F note) the string is buzzing out on the 14th fret. That fret is too high in that one spot and needs to be leveled.

    Fret work is one of the few things that I've always let the pros handle. I'm having a hard time making an appt tho, so I've decided to fix it myself. This seems like the perfect small job for my first attempt at fret repair.

    I need to buy the tools for this and need help choosing to right file(s). I've noticed that fret files can get pretty pricey; I'm looking to buy the the cheapest one that isn't a piece of junk. Any suggestions?

    Also, if anyone has some tips on the best way to do this job correct, and even out the fret with itself and the others, I'd appreciate it.
