    St. Vincent: stainless steel frets?

    Anyone know if the St. V has stainless steel frets? Specs don't mention it so I thought I'd ask.

    Good question. I don’t think they do, but the BFRs definitely do. I was surprised when I got mine to find it had them as original spec said not

    Usually, if they have stainless, it will be made a selling point. Though, eventually I think everyone is going towards Stainless.
