Hey does anyone know if de-fretting a bass can cause or worsen Dead Spots? I de-fretted an ATK300 a while back and then found out it had some very annoying dead spots. I bought the bass specifically to de-fret it. And when I got it the frets where not in great shape so I pulled them out before playing with it much. I am think about buying another Bass a de-fretting it to replace this one but feel a little hesitant because I am not sure if the dead spots where there before I de-fretted it. Any feedback would be appreciated.
