Pulled the frets on a 1960 Esquire today. Already fretted a few guitars with these now (I think this will be my 5th refret in the last two weeks), but this one, these old Fenders, this is where I'm going to be really grateful to finally have a set like this!

Thanks definetly worth it to protect and keep them organized. Plus it solved the issue of figuring out which caul is in the press
