SOLID JIG BASE
The jig base is constructed from 20mm thick solid hardwood. A grooved rubber covering on the top face provides firm support & grip for the fretboard.
For stability, we recommend that the jig is clamped in a vice. The solid base permits this without damage or crushing the jig sides. The base is also fitted with 4-rubber feet.
The jig can also be adapted for slotting 1-piece necks. A 1-piece neck attachment (optional) is available and designed for fastening onto the side fixing holes.
The jig is supplied with a 2.5mm depth fretsaw as standard. This can be substituted for an alternative depth if preferred. (Sanding the board radius will reduce the fret slot depth at the edges and the 2.5mm saw leaves suitable remaining depth for the majority fretwire). 5 blades are included with the saw. Spare Blades can also be purchased from the webstore.
FRET SCALE TEMPLATES
The package includes a set of Fret Scale Templates. For detailed information on their construction and use, please see the Fret Slotting Information page.
