i have a jackson king v guitar that has a bound neck and uses medium jumbo frets now im refretting with jumbo SS frets,
do i need to get a fret fitter in any way?
or what about a refret saw to widen or deepen the slot?

Have you measured and compared the old fret tangs to the new fret tangs?

no you got a point there, partner.
i actually haven't taken em out yet. but i was thinking maybe there would be a set proportion for jumbo fret wires or jumbo SS fret wires to be more specific.
ill check it out tho. ;0

It all depends on who made the originals...you probably won't be able to find the original manufacturer, so my guess is you'll have to measure once it comes out.

the originals are 6150 - medium jumbo @ .103 X .046". which is pretty much what Jackson uses on the KV2 series (or used to use).
im replacing them with SS6100 .110 X .057". xD

You should be fine, the slots will open up a little when you pull out the others. The only way to be sure is bend a dog leg sm. pc. and hammer it in, see if it holds. Most slots start at .023, info on fret wire is hard to get sometimes. Try the sm. pc. trial, thats what I've heard pros do. I think frets . com has info, it will give you all sorts off info on re-fretting, good luck.

thx bro
i like that site too

my only concern now is those tangs that i need to cut for my bound fingerboard; as i haven't worked on one yet.
so i got the refret saw, a chisel for cleaning, and a slot gauge.
i didnt buy the nibbler tool however as it was only recommended for soft metal sheets and plastics, not stainless steel.

I've never worked on a bound one, But they sure seem to make a lot of them. I guess they can cut off the tang edge with a fret cutter and file the cut part so it fits nice. I broke down and got the stewmac one for 20.00 or so, really a XMAS gift. I have to say it cuts better than the snips I had . I would have to do it that way, if I did a bound one. I guess every fret is crafted one by one, some guys on the forum do some nice ones. If you have touble go to the procedure link and post on there, I think more people view there. Let us know what happens. PS you still have the fun of leveling and crowning, but that was'nt as bad as I thought either.
