Dropped off my 1989 Deluxe Plus for a refret today. I chose a luthier who has a really good reputation. After the guys examined and played my guitar the luthier came and spoke to me about fretwire and a few other adjustments. Here's the rundown. They're going to lower the nut and bring it forward towards the body. I've always had issues with the high e buzzing at the nut like a freakin sitar, the guy explained to me the limitations of the Wilkinson nut ( I am painfully aware I bought this guitar new in 1989) and also noted that the gap from nut to fretboard was too large. There was a decent gap there I'd estimate at something like 3-4 mm. I don't know much about the nut or adjusting it. Felt like he knew what he was talking about. I've complained about this damn nut many times to various people over the years nobody has ever fixed it. They all thought the action could go down. I laughed at that because I thought it was lowish around 1.7mm-2mm but who doesnt love lower action? My floating trem could be set a little better, apparently I had it sitting higher than it could be. Frets are not worth leveling. I already knew that and have been puting off having the re-fret done, we chose the 6105 wire because I wanted to keep the guitar close to originalish. I think the original frets were 6130 so these will definitely be taller but not as big as the 6100's on my ESP. This is the third guy I have had look at it. 350$ 3 weeks max. I live in San Diego and I took estimates from other shops, but one of the shops would not do a full refret and I know it needs it. I chose this guy on a recommendation from somebody here on Strat Talk and several local musicians I know (yes I am a local musican but I am a transplant and I usually do my own setups). I will post pictures when I get her back.
