    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

    Hey folks, I've got a '83 SQ series Squier P bass that needs two frets replaced due to damage (looks like it fell over and took a chunck out on just those two) the rest of the frets are in really good shape.
    Anyone know what size wire they spec'd on these from the factory? As it needs to match :)

    Thanks for any help on this

    you'll need to take it to a guy who can measure, match and install them. it's not really a DIY thing.

    the new frets will need to be leveled down to match the old ones, which were leveled when they were installed. fret leveling is one of the most (if not the most) critical aspects of getting a guitar to play right.
