grating - string/fret


Senior member
on some of my frets on my new warmoth jazzmaster, there's a grating feeling when i bend on certain frets.

i've also experienced this on my strat with a warmoth conversion neck.

the strings are new ...
Yeah it's probably finish on the frets.  It'll go away, or you can polish the frets with steel wool if you're impatient like me.  I'm sure there's a thread around here on polishing frets somewhere....

yea it is a fully maple neck.

There you go.  If it was finished, the finish is also on the frets.  It will wear off over time or you can clean it off.  Do a search around the site for more instructions.
