I have a MIM made in 2000 with alder body and a maple neck. I've customised the guitar to the point that the only remaining original parts are the body and the neck. The neck has vintage frets, some of which are now worn to the point that I think a refret is in order. I could level, but because they're vintage height I think I'd end up too low. Also I'd have to lower every fret to the new height. So I called a couple of luthiers. One charges $500 for a maple refret. The other charges $550. OMG! I could buy a new neck for less than that. I'm in Sydney, Australia, so that might affect the price, but even so, this seems over the top. So my questions: What are the chances I could refret this neck myself? I'm handy with wiring, and I have a woodwork bench, but I've never refretted anything in my life. My thought at the moment is, how hard could it be? And if I stuff it up, I'd only end up moving on to Plan B anyway: Would I be better off just buying a new neck? If so, what would be a recommended source? I checked out Warmoth, and I imagine there are others? All suggestions welcome.
