Shrek's Little Brother Shred 13 - Fret Level - How to Build a Copper Leaf Multi-Scale Kit Guitar
Welcome to Crimson Guitars https://www.youtube.com/user/CrimsonCustomGuitars?sub_confirmation=1 and Ben's home workshop. This is the new midweek series where Ben builds a unique fanned fret / multiscale kit guitar. This is the brand new Uncut, Fanned Fret Kit Guitar from Crimson that Ben has been looking forward to launching for a long time - https://www.crimsonguitars.com/products/kit-guitar-uncut-fanned-fret
In this episode, Ben continues sanding and buffing the finish to get a perfect matte look on the back of the guitar. He also does a Level, Crown, and Polish ready for set-up.
