    Silver Sky scratchy frets and bending concerns

    To those still interested, I think I’ve had some luck. More testing is needed though. I wiped down the underside of the strings with a microfiber cloth and honestly that helped a lot. Granted, my frets aren’t in bad shape anymore since I polished them about 3 weeks ago or less when I changed...
