    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.

    Well, I guess you've just foreshadowed it! GAK Had just read out the specs and seems like they're changing most of the it guitars onto stainless steel Frets... but no confirmation of the STV model so far... We shall see.
