Would it be safe if I sanded down the things that go in between the frets? This thing, I'm not sure what its called:



Thanks

why is the string in the actual guitar?


He mistook neck through for through neck.

If you do, you'd have to push down on the strings a bit harder from now on, not sure. But who would wanna do that?

Those are fretbars (actually, they're called Frets, but I call em fretbars to eliminate confusion). Unless you know ABSOLUTELY 100% what you're doing, you'll screw up your intonation and cause your strings to 'fret out' (when they bump against the fretbars and buzz).

Essentially it's a great way to wreck your guitar unless you're qualified. Why do you want to sand em to begin with?

i think he thinks he'll have to push less hard....

or maybe he just thinks they look ugly? ha

Metal bar = Fret
Space between fret = Fretboard

If you didn't know that, I think its best to leave them as they are.

umm the inlays the fret? or the fretboard itself??

Whatever it is you're thinking of doing...no, it's not a good idea. I don't know what you think it will achieve, but whatever it is it won't achieve it.
Actually called Mark!

Wow, it really is some guitar + banjo hybrid.

There's really no reason to sand down the fret wire. If you're getting a lot of fret buzz, always try and fix that by raising the action at the bridge or with a slight truss rod adjustment. Sanding your frets is a quick and easy way to ruin a guitar.

I've no idea what the original question actually means, but i google imaged 'fret sizes' and found this http://www.duelinguitars.com/accessories.htm - it appears to be like a banjo lol

Wondered what was going on... lol

I dunno if they mean to sand the frets themselves, or 'scallop' it with sandpaper... neither being a good idea...
