I'm really interested in the whole scalloped fretboard thing. I was wondering how much it costs to get this done.
Is it really worth the money for the end result?

Any info appreciated

You'd probably have to contact a luthier or some other kind of guitar maker to have it done, or if your guitar has a bolt-on neck you could buy a second neck with frets scalloped. I'd really go out and find a guitar with scalloped frets and try it out first though

i did mine myself. came out alright i guess. i mean i had never tried it before. it feels a little different but it honestly didnt make it feel like it was any easier or harder to play. it's really just a preference i think.

What did you scallop them with (I have an old neck I feel like practicing on)

could probably do it in your kitchen with a knife

I did mine with files and sandpaper, similar time to LU!5, I think mine was 6 hours. I would be scared of using a dremel unless you are a real artist with it. There was someone on this forum a month or two ago who will do it for a very low cost, but he lives in Europe. Even with the cost of shipping your neck there and back it was less than what I would charge.

I have this strange thing where I think my time is worth something, then I waste it all anyways.
