Crystal Frets - Increase Guitar Sustain - Great Guitar Tone

Quartz guitar frets? No thankyou! smells like snakeoil to me!

I really doubt that steel frets absorb a lot of vibration from the strings and there's probably stuff you could do with your technique that would increase gain a lot more than this stuff so I agree it's probably snake oil. I would like to try a guitar with quartz frets though

They probably look nice but yeah, it's probably just a money grab.

I'd only get them if they could also make your guitar tell the time. I doubt I'd be willing ti splurge out more money considering I'm still using a guitar that cost 4.

"Metal frets are so last millenium...frets made of pure quartz are the next-generation answer to guitar playing."

look if the body is cheap wood, i'd doubt even diamond frets would make it sustain longer

You fail to comprehend the cosmic phase loops interweaved into your string resonance through quartz and its rainbonic powers
