Re: Frets wearing out

They look over priced.
any capo is going to put strings on frets, frets wear out.  ease of use? spring loaded ones work for me.

Kyser or Dunlop are both good and not too pricey.  I use a Dunlop and keep it fairly close to the fret wire in use.... they do come in various arcs to match the radius of your fretboard, so when shopping it does help to have a guitar like yours around to check fit before buying.  Mine works on everything I own including the 12 and electric all the way up to the 9th fret, where the neck profile on the 12 gets a bit "thick" (not that anyone would want to go that high...."yeah I'm too cheap to buy a real Mandolin").  smile
