    Ok, so I bought this bass about two years ago. It's a quality bass, with incredibly good looks (a little like myself :smug:). Anyhow, the former owner had had it de-fretted.....stuuuuuuuuupid. However, for the price I got it for it was still a good buy. Now, will it be possible to get it re-fretted without destroying the fingerboard and binding?

    Any bass can be re-fretted. (Or almost)

    Depends on the money you have to put on your bass to have the frets put on.

    I'll pay up to £200 for the full job to be done.

    I'd charge $400 for a bound fingerboard, $450 if it's ebony. If this bass has had the fret slots filled, it could be an expensive can of worms.

    Buying a new neck might even be cheaper.

    Where do I find a 75 reissue neck for it though?
