When is it time for a fret job?
I've had my LP Classic for close to 15 years and over its lifetime it's received a fair amount of play time. Several years ago I noticed some visible wear on a few of the frets, and by now pretty much every fret is visibly worn. Honestly, it doesn't bother me much and doesn't seem to hurt the intonation badly enough to warrant big spending on a fix.
But it got me to wondering, at what point does a guitarist/bassist bite the bullet and get a fret job done? Is total replacement of all of the frets the way to go? What kind of ballpark cost are we talking here? I don't even know what's what when it comes to fret wire options. Something more resistant to wear seems like an attractive option to me...
Everyone's a voyeur, they're watching me watch them watch me right now
