Just bought a clean 74 Thinline on eBay. The guitar frets were listed as "very little wear" on a guitar the seller was selling for a friend. I asked for pix of the nut and frets but was reassured all was fine. After receiving the guitar I contacted the seller and told him he was dead-wrong about the frets and a refret might cost me $500. He admitted he didn't look at the frets because his friend said they were OK. But since the guitar actually plays well as-is, we decided on a $250 refund. The frets are literally flat, but for some reason there are no buzzes and intonation is OK. I actually like it, but it feels fretless and a little weird. On the 7.5" radius, even string bends don't choke, but are a little gritty due to the flat tops. I would refret a rosewood neck, but don't believe I have the chops for a vintage maple neck. I am going to keep playing it for now and may try to simply recrown and polish them as they don't need leveled. Hopefully in a year or so I will have developed the chops for a refret and refinish of the fingerboard. SO, the point of the post is this - does ANYONE like playing with frets this worn? Am I odd? I don't play professionally and tend to wear typical frets VERY slowly. If I do decide to refret the neck, can anyone suggest a good specialist on maple necks that is reasonably priced? Not much in my area, so I will need to ship at least the neck.
