My godfather gave me a few parts and guitar bodys and I currently have 3 put together now, they are old ibanez models from 1990's. They all seem to have dead frets on the High E frets 9 ,11 and string B on fret 11. Am I going to have to refret or possibly polish to make them all even or is there a different solution?
maybe you could get action/truss rod fixed before refretting
raise your bridge. I had the same problem with my tele. My action was too low, and gave off fret buzz on basically the same spots your describing. (Your intonation may be off too.)
Im going to try it right nao.
