It’s occurred to me that a lot of a guitar repairer’s time is spent removing things from guitars. Sometimes that just involves unscrewing some screws but, other times (often?), some additional effort and knowledge is required to safely remove something.
Gibson has installed binding with small 'nibs' at each of the fret-ends for years. This doesn't really serve any functional purpose but is mainly aesthetic. Nothing wrong with that but, when it comes time for a refret, it poses a bit of a problem.
