Just getting some ideas on how much I should plan on for for a re-fret.
350 for stainless.
Anyone who charges you more for stainless (other than the fretwire itself costing a couple dollars more) is ripping you off.
So is $180 decent for a maple neck with little finish left on it?
Have been thinking of having my old ‘81 Ibanez Blazer re-done
$180 is very reasonable.
If you’re near new jersey look up Bordentown guitar rescue.
Mike there did a fantastic job on my old ‘67 tele . He Did a whole refret on a maple board without messing up the finish at all. I believe he charged me $200 and was done in less than a week. The fret job was outstanding. I can’t recommend him enough.
My last one was 350.
Make sure a bone nut is included
what kinda fingerboard does it have?
$350. There were binding nibs involved.
1991 Jackson Soloist, 24 fret ebony w/shark-fins, bound. I haven't decided on a fret size yet but I'm thinking SS, tall and wide.
I think I paid just south of $300 for stainless steel frets and a bone nut. Bound fret board but no nibs. This was on an Edwards LP copy. I opted for medium frets, not jumbos and I'm glad I did.
That was many years ago and the frets still look like new, zero wear or corrosion.
yep. I'd say 350 bux..
300. So worth it. If you are in the Portland Or area, Guitar Works. Amazing stuff.
It seems like every electric guitar I own has little dents in the frets. I haven't noticed any playability issues.
I am scared to death I'll take it to someone who will botch it.
I just had my Clapton Strat refretted. Total cost with setup was $335. The guitar plays so much better now. Well worth the cost.
I highly recommend this one.
Any recommendations for a high quality refret (with stainless) in the Bay Area? If so about how much was it?
the last two SS refrets I had done were 275, Gibson's one rosewood, one ebony... I get rid of the nibs though, I like the frets to go to the edges of the fretboard
I'm hoping to find someone sort of local so I don't have to ship the guitar (neck-thru) but I don't think any local shops in my immediate my area are up to the task.
I'm north of Milwaukee, if anyone by chance has a recommendation. I had a guy in Milwaukee back in the day but I don't think he's around anymore.
Thanks for sharing this link to Aperio. I would prefer not to ship my guitar for a refret, but it would be worth it to have someone who does nothing but stainless refrets and has a great reputation work on my guitar.
