Is there any way to tell what kind of frets are on my guitar? I'm pretty much hoping they're stainless, but then it could just be nickel alloy. This guitar has been through a number of refrets before it came to be mine. How much difference in tone is there between nickel alloy and stainless? Given well-polished nickel alloy and stainless frets, would the stainless look different (be more shiny, etc.)?
