For those with a non-vintage neck on their teles, where does one draw the line between getting a refret and just buying a new neck and having the frets dressed on it? I was recently quoted approximately $350 for a refret on a maple fretboard tele neck. This price includes removing the old frets, prepping to install new ones, as well as leveling & crowning the new ones and a new nut install. A level and crown can run between $70-100, and a new nut install is about $60-90 from the same individual. So the actual cost of removing the old frets and installing new ones is about $160-220. The level/crown and new bone nut install price seem fair to me, at least on the lower end of the pricing. Does the cost for the removal and install of new frets seem good? I'm not asking because I think the prices are super high, I've just never had to get a refret before. If these prices seem fair, then I'm assuming that to pick a refret over a new neck, one would either have to own a vintage instrument, or really love their existing neck. I mean, you can get a Warmoth neck for $157, an Allparts for around $125-135, and a USACG for about $230 (for a maple neck & board). Aside from the USACG neck price, it seems like it'd be more cost efficient to just go with a new neck, nut and level/crown. Just wondering who here has weighed the options between refret vs. replace for a non-vintage neck where the frets are shot.
