Question for you G&L owners
Are the stainless steel frets worth the $400 upgrade?

I have a used JB that I am pretty sure has SS frets (shinier than the other frets I've seen on G&Ls - but other than that, I don't notice a big difference). They are nice but if got a new one I would not do the $400.
If you are playing 2 hours a day then it might be worth it since they last longer. Otherwise, no.

Stainless frets will also sound brighter. I've never owned a bass with stainless frets and I've never had to have one re-fretted. $400 is way too much. Look at what Carvin charges for stainless frets to get an idea of what it should cost. If a company is charging a BIG upcharge for something, it's usually b/c they really don't want to do it and the hefty price is to deter people from asking for it.
