Why did Steve stopped using the weird frets

I remembered he was talking a lot of crapola about how the true temperament frets make the instrument super in tune and how he was going to put them in all his guitar, yet it was short lived and he removed or put another neck lmao

Dude couldn't realize is just another guitar gimmick and went ahead with it, probably paid thousands to have them installed only to never use them again

He was still using them here, but now all his guitars not longer have them

This true temperament probably makes the guitar worse

Iím sure he didnít pay anything to have anything installed. You seem to be a pretty negative guy, Fowleri, and itís getting tired.

Yeah he probably didn't pay anything but he was raving about them for so long, how they were an amazing invention and how the guitar is a failed instrument that doesnt stay in tune and this fixes it

Flo has had a true temperament neck for over ten years, it was recently scalloped.

Evos true temperament neck is on the evo replica.

Necks get switched, need to be worked on (replacing frets means sending the neck to texas for TT or even Sweden), etc. evo has been through 3 or 4 necks in the last ten years.
