    (I posted another comment but wanted to add information)
    Worked great. Would like to make some notes:
    – I have a GH08 and a GH07. One of them had all PH screws and did not require a T10. I don’t recall which.
    – The fret boards on both of my guitars were held in place by PH screws.
    – I did not find it necessary to modify the fret buttons on my GH07 guitar. When installed with stock frets as-is, the mechanical switches were not pushed down enough to prevent activation by pressing the buttons.
    – The back of the mechanical-switches-installed fret board has some bits which protrude out the back. These bits collide with some plastic supports inside the neck of the guitar (which were meant to keep the flat-backed original fret board from flexing), causing the new fret board to flex in the direction of the frets when assembled. I was able to remove the supports with pliers, and then needed to fill that space back in with something else (I used paper towel, but folded electrical tape comes to mind as an alternative). Filing down the supports would likely have been a better solution, but I was impatient.
