Extra Frets ?

No Problem !

As a player's skills improve so does one's repertoire . This often demands a few extra "notes" of one's instrument. Rather than retune or "bend" to find that note, many prefer to add an extra fret . . . or two . . . or four or. . .

Papaw's standard fretting includes a 6+ and a 13+. Other frets can be added at the time an instrument is built .
