Is it a good idea to even try to defret a bass? Do they EVER come out right? I have a junker that someone gave to me and don't need it since I bought a new one..think I should try to defret it? I really don't know that much about basses so I'd be going at it blindly..I'm out of maybe $5 if it doesn't work..this bass is junk..chunks out of it..broken pick gaurd..electronics are messed up..thats just a few things wrong with it..the frets are almost gone already! Anyone know of any tutorials or have any hints from experience?
