    Can someone please give me a rough estimate on what the cost of a complete refret of a rickenbacker 4001 would be?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hey guys, thank you again for the replies. That was pretty much around what I figured it would be. In the end for the amount of work that would have needed to be done on this bass it wasn't worth what they were asking. Thanks for saving me the headache.

    Hey guys, I am from Long Island, New York. I have a '97 4003 Fireglo. Bought it off eBay a while back. The guy who owned it didn't take very good care of it. Because I have had all these neck issues. I just had it adjusted and set up at the local music store, great place. The tech mentioned something about a refret. I was wondering, are there any bassists here on Long Island that would know what a good price for a refret would be?
