hey guys, right now im learning for the love of god by steve vai, and as you may know it has tons of full bends, in nearly the same spots along the fret board. I have jumbo size frets, is it worth learning the song over how much damage it may cause to the frets?

What guitar is it?
Better company/guitar, higher quality frets and the longer they'll last

one song shouldn't ruin them

at least your fret doesnt has a part that randomly show up one day that is like this \/.THe G string almost fits in it snugly but it doesnt

Quote by one vision
If you play the song for 4 years every day all day, you might see some difference in the frets.


wow thats surprising, thanks for all of the replies.

i wouldn't worry about the frets getting ruined, as long as you don't try to sand them down or do something weird with them, they'll be fine
#15
dont worry...

i had a 1970s era guitar for about 20 years and i never had to refret until the frets popped out.

so no worries, unless your srv and use 13 guages.

Man, I'm glad I got stainless steel frets on my Carvin. Those babies will last for ****ing evar!

My Kramer, however, has **** frets. Really chewed up. And I've only had it a couple years.

My frets on my Ibanez RG are wearing out. I've had it for a year, so the frets are not the best. I played the **** out of it, but still. Nothing serious though, still very playable, and when it doesn't work more, I'll reasemble it as it were original, buy a used and better guitar and swap the good parts into it.
