Stainless Steel Frets - I think it's high time...
Am I the only one that hates regular, "soft" frets? Sure, it makes it easy to just bang them in, but they're hardly durable at all. Parker uses them, and now Stick Enterprises equips new (and retrofits) sharp, stainless steel frets on their Chapman Sticks. Of course, it requires a special method for actually fastening them to the fretboard, and I think Parker uses a slot-in method...anyway, it'd rock IMHO if Ibanez started to make *durable* frets. :D
