I was in worlds largest retailer over the holiday, as they were having a "list" sale. A young guy was trying a CV Tele, and I heard the salesguy say that he did not recommend he buy that, as they had soft fret wire that wears too fast. He implied he would only get a year or so before it needed the frets worked on, and fret work was not warrantied. You might think he was trying to upsell, but I then heard the guy tell him that the $99 Bullet Teles they were selling had better fret wire. I think I heard him say it was due to them being made in Indonesia instead of China like the CV. This whole thing sounded crazy to me, why would one line have softer frets than other lines? Wouldnt that kill sales? Has anyone else heard of this?
