Bass re fret/ setup glasgow area?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


So on restringing a bass I bought a few weeks back, it looks like the zero fret needs replacing. Other frets seem ok but could maybe do with a tidy up.


Does anyone have recommendations of shops local to Glasgow who would do a good job?


I know strung out and Jimmy Egypt offer this service but I've never used them.

Just curious...  what's the zero fret?  

It's a fret just after the nut. It gives a more uniform sound between fretted notes and open strings.

I guess it's more forgiving to a badly cut nut too.

As mine is so worn out I don't think I'm getting the best out of it at the moment.
