Does anyone know if the neck binding originally had nibs on the fret ends (like some Gibson SG)?

Mine is close to being due for a re-fret, and has a subtle appearance of nibs on some of the frets.

I suppose 40+ years could have worn the nibs (if they were ever there), or possibly a previous level and crowning job may have worn at the binding above and below some frets, leaving an illusion of nibs.

I looked through Hans' book, but didn't find any mention.

Looks like the frets lay over the top of the binding here.

Best thing would be to contact Hans directly via email and ask. He's good about responding.

Frets over binding.
