    Just as title says, most of my frets are showing severe wear and I need to get them replaced. I have read that sometimes it ends up cheaper to just get a new neck. Now I have done everything on my guitar from the painting to the wiring but I do not see investing in the tools needed for a refret. Plus the time to learn obviously. So I don't want a new neck, I love my neck and it has some nice wear on it. I'm afraid that the local GC will not do a good job. So any advice or luthier recommendations for my area, central FL?

    Without hesitation I would recommend taking it to Doug Montgomery and Bill Fels at the Guitar Factory on Edgewater Dr in College Park. They are a factory repair facility for many major guitar brands. They have done nearly all my fret work for over 30 years. Top shelf workmanship!
