The frets on this Mustang were in terrible condition. They were extremely rough, uneven, and had been filed to their limit. The fretboard had been lacquered and there had been some filing in between the frets leaving the surface scarred, ugly and with a flatter radius in the lower positions. The fretboards on these Mustangs are very thin so leveling the board and removing the finish had to be done with extreme care.
