Thanks for the replies everyone. I read through all your responses and I'm convinced now that I should get the guitar re-fretted in the future, whenever the job needs to be done. For now the frets are still decent and if anything needs to be done next, I'll get them leveled, crowned, polished. I don't sell guitars too often so I'm not thinking about re-sale value at all. I agree with those who said that if I'm happy with the guitar I should do what work needs to be done to maintain it and getting it playing better than ever. You're right, the price I paid for the guitar shouldn't matter as long as I like playing it. I'm all about getting guitars that suit me and let me be creative, so whether it's a cheap or expensive guitar that doesn't matter. I've tried lots of guitars and it's not too often I come across one with a neck that fits like a glove, so I'd be afraid to get rid of this one. Interesting. I never thought of getting the neck duplicated. That's an option I'll think about. And getting stainless steel frets instead could be a good bonus too. I think the same thing too. Good points. I think I get influenced by people sometimes who get so concerned about "value" that I let that cloud my judgment. I think this Ibanez is a nice guitar that deserves to be played and earned the right to be upgraded and maintained.
