    You realize this is just making a mess that I'm sure mods aren't looking forward to cleaning.

  7. What about basses with frets that are stuck in the retracted position? I have one of these, but I can't afford to get it fixed. At least the frets are even with the fretboard, so it just looks like lines where the frets shoudl be.

    I'll customize your bass with this option for only 5000 CDN.
